Traditionally, February 29th is the day that a woman can ask a man to marry her. Sure, times have changed but this tradition isn’t so bad. In some European countries, such as Denmark, tradition says any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. In Finland, it changes to fabric for a skirt. If it landed me some beautiful fingerless mitts, I might not mind having those instead of a husband some days! Here are some fun and free patterns to celebrate these traditions. Enjoy!
