The Elva Beanie



Hello beautiful people and welcome day 27. Gee, it's hard to think that there are only a few days left now for the #ittybittygianthatdrive for 2015. Its been a pretty epic month for sure!

Today's pattern is the Elva beanie, which will fit a bub of 26-28 weeks gestation. Its a dainty little one, with a pop of colour to really make it shine. It reminds me of a flower garden, and I can't wait to play with this stitch some more down the track.
