Hello hello day 21! Gee, the end of our third week! Incredible!
Today's pattern, the Ryan beanie, is a sweet and small beanie, for 28-30 weeks gestation and features the seed stitch, and clever colour changes, to make zigzag stripes. Take note though, you will need a light hand for this one, as sc stitches can tend to get a bit tight, and won't have as much stretch as the hdc's do. It's such a pretty stitch though!
