The Samara Beanie



Hello hello! Welcome to day 13.
Today's pattern is the Samara beanie. Sized to fit 34-36 weeks gestation, this is a stunning little hat. I've used bamboo yarns to make it. Have I mentioned how much I love bamboo yarns? Im sure I have tehehe! Its so light and soft and fun to work with.
