“Aria” a gorgeous pattern in DK with instructions for cardigan and hat.


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 DK 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 DK for this pattern.

    I fell in love with this pattern from the moment I first saw it. The pattern is extremely easy to follow as are all of Donna’s. I chose stylecraft special DK in ‘matador’ a gorgeous red. This wool is beautifully soft to touch and knits up beautifully. This pattern would be suitable for a beginner as not too complex. This one is for my great granddaughter Ayla who is 18 months old now. She’s a lucky girl and models most of my knits that are big enough. This one will be my go to pattern in the future. I topped the hat off with a faux fur Pom Pom in ‘champagne’ which matches the ‘I’m adorable’ buttons.

    I’m in love with this pattern! I was thrilled with the results, so much so I’m making it again in a different colour.
    My first attempt at doing anything with cable, the pattern was very easy to follow, well written and I totally enjoyed using it.
