ABERDEEN, a lovely Cardigan with matching Hat featuring a really subtle stitch on the body and a nice balance with the change of stitch at the yoke.  Suitable for both boys and girls, this is a smashing knit.  Worked over a 6 row repeat on the main pattern, it is a quick “grower”.

ABERDEEN comes in chest size 16″ – 22″ and knits to sizes 18″ – 25″ on straight needles.

Please measure the child as they come in all shapes and sizes so may need extra length or a different chest size.  The ages suggested are an approximation and loose guide.  This is particularly important on this one.

ABERDEEN – a gorgeous Aran set.

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Cardigan and matching Hat has instructions to fit 16″ to 22″ chest.  Always measure the child prior to starting your project as all children are different.

Wool & yarn recommendation…

I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is!  For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special Aran which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin.  There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier.  (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox Aran for this pattern.

    I just finished my first Aberdeen sweater. Such an easy pattern to follow, only needed the cable needle on every 6th row, and it knitted up very quickly.

    Completed Aberdeen sweater and hat for a customer. I love that it is a 6 row repeat and only 1 row is a cable. I did not have enough yarn to knit a blanket to match so I chose to knit pants from the Allison pattern and boots and mitts from Donna’s free patterns. Enough yarn left over to make a lovey. I definately suggest this pattern for anyone looking for a simple knit.
