This pattern was a recent very popular Mystery Knit -

Amazing results! Thank you to everyone who took part (there were more than 100 !!) - I hope you enjoyed the fun :)

I called this little hat 'Wave of Light' in support of Baby Loss Awareness Week.
The death of a baby is not a rare event. It can happen to anyone.

Every year, thousands of people in the UK are affected by the death of a baby or experience pregnancy loss.

A collaboration between more than 60 charities across the UK, Baby Loss Awareness Week is held from 9 to 15 October to raise awareness about the key issues affecting those who have experienced pregnancy loss or baby death in the UK.

Throughout the week bereaved parents, their families and friends, unite with each other and others across the world to commemorate the lives of babies who died during pregnancy, at or soon after birth and in infancy.

On 15th October at 7pm, families across the world light a candle to remember all babies that have died too soon - a 'Wave of Light'

Now in its 16th year, Baby Loss Awareness Week calls for tangible improvements in research, care and policy around bereavement support and highlights bereavement support and services available for anyone affected by the death of a baby at any stage.
