FAMILY BEANIE – english pattern


‘Family beanie’ is a very easy ribbed hat with 5 sizes from newborn to adult knitted with Gilliatt from De Rerum Natura.

As a breastfeeding mum, I was deeply touched when I saw a diaper made with a garbage bag on the news. I’ve been feeling so sad since then, and so I guessed I should try to help in the way that I can do best: by knitting. We arranged a fundraising during Dec 2023 and donated 1475,50€ to José Andrés and his World Central Kitchen.
