It was the one I used for her baptism. The height of my knitting skill at the time. Seemed to be the never-ending project but I did eventually finish it in time!
Unfortunately years later I lent it to another baby and it was carelessly lost. Sad about that.
Now I have finally made another one. Also in cotton exactly the same pattern. The stitch pattern is the Snowdrop design. A symbol of new life and hope.
This is the design!
