*Little Baby* (free pattern)


Hi!
I finally got my pattern ready! It´s a simple and VERY EASY pattern for a baby girl/boy. I designed pattern for a baby, because there wasn´t any good patterns online for free. And I decided to make one. The pattern isn´t tested so please contact me if you find any errors. I hope I see many little babies in the future.

Lopultakin sain uuden ohjeen valmiiks. Se on superhelppo vauvan ohje. Mua on pitkään harmittanut ettei mistään oo löytynyt ilmaista simppelia ohjetta vauvalle, joten mä päätin suunnitella sen sitten itse. Ohjetta ei oo testattu, joten ilmotelkaa, jos löytyy vikoja!

And finally the pattern:
You need:
DK yarn in skin colour and in white.
