A quick project with a stunning texture to make the yarn shine!
The pattern is easy and fun to knit, using simple stitches to create a texture that looks more complex that it is and reminds me of blooms or open hands, to give some hope in this hard moment.
I hope that this small project will help you to keep yourself busy and hopeful. Everything will be fine!
Thank you nerakeel for the name suggestion!



This pattern is free. If possible, I’d love you to donate some money to the organizations that are working to help solving this horrible pandemic. Let’s raise the hope that everything will be fine.
