Free Pattern- Surrogacy Stork

As you know, surrogacy is near and dear to my heart. Not only am I a surrogate, but I have met amazing surrogates through this process, who have really shown me what it means to be a sisterhood. Women are so incredibly strong, resilient and supportive. What has touched me the most, is when a woman who is experienced suffering, such as a miscarriage or PPD, is able to reach out to another surrogate who is struggling and offer support from firsthand experience. It absolutely amazes me! In honour of surrogates, I have created a simple and small Stork crochet pattern:

I used a 3.5 hook size.

Insert safety eyes around rd 4, leaving 3 st in between or embroider them on now.
