Sharing Sasha Baby Clothes

Mommy’s cast came off about two weeks ago, and so this week past, she was able to begin knitting again. Unfortunately, she didn’t knit for us, but she did make an outfit for our Sasha baby sister, Ona.

The outfit began with a onesie in green.

Then, Mommy made Ona a funny hat.

Later on, Ona got some leggings, a jacket and a scarf to keep her warm.

Mommy is going to share the patterns with you, but she wants to make a different jacket because the one she made is not her own pattern, and she said it was very fiddly to make – whatever that means…

So this week, she is sharing the onesie and the hat patterns, first. The other patterns will get shared next week.
