“Anne” is a stunning Aran knit cardigan and matching hat in 4 sizes; 16″ to 22″ chest.

This knit comes up on the larger side as it is intended as a replacement for a jacket.  It is a beautiful cable that just flows; traditional but modern!

I am reluctant to state ages for sizes and those suggested on pattern are for guidance only – as children get older, rule of thumb is to go by chest size.

Anne is an Aran set comprising of cardigan and hat.

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 Hat and Cardigan has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 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.

    Love this pattern! Absolutely stunning result and so quick and easy to knit, I did have a little glitch at the start but a quick message and the team were very helpful in sorting me out, turns out I had read the pattern wrong, a gift for my nephew I know mum is going to be thrilled with it

    Knitting this at the moment and it’s such an easy knit but such a gorgeous pattern. Never had a problem with any of Donnas patterns and the support group she has built is amazing. I would highly recommend
