ANTU, the little sun

Almost a year ago, in the middle of summer in the northern hemisphere, Antu, the little sun, emerged from my crochet hook, in an attempt to reconcile me to the great star in the middle of a heat wave. Now, to celebrate the solstice, and give you a gift, I have dusted off my messy notes and here you have it. A happy and simple pattern to thank you for the company and love you give to my little knitted characters.

I hope you enjoy it, a big hug to all of you, especially to those who, like me, will only see the beach in your dreams and to those of you in the southern hemisphere that the sun will accompany you on cold winter days.

Take care!
