This season, I`ve decided to use new wools in all my designs, as they fill the shelves of the store, different textures, that make my imagination flow, and as I´m used to design free patterns for everyone.

First of all, I began with a commitment I took with some of my supporters. For this project I have selected delicate wool: Mondial Trade, 65% superfine merino virgin wool, 25% alpaca wool and 10% microfiber called soave. Is so warm and light that makes a difference to our baby´s layette. Though we use a 4´5 mm needle, I can tell you the “feel” of the wool and its hang doesn´t make it a rough garment.

Difficulty:

Medium

Size:

6 month

Materials:

2 soave Mondial balls 976 color

4,5 mm circular needle

5 buttons

2 black beads

Stitches useds:

Garter stitch

Stockinette stitch

Moss stitch

Cross stitch or eight stitch

Gage:

With 4, 5 mm in garter stitch 24 stitches and 42 rounds: 10 X 10 ctms.
