Sonrisa /sōnˈrē.sə/ - Smile.
This pullover was knit for my little boy. From the time he was born, I’ve always said he looks just like my uncle when he smiles. Sadly, my uncle passed from cancer not very long ago. Someone suggested that I name this pattern in memory of him. It was such a perfect tribute, that I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it myself. I’ve named it Smile, because I get to see my uncle every time my son smiles.
