“Breda” is beautiful Aran unisex design, instructions for Cardigan and Hat (matching Bootees can be downloaded for free!).  Named after Annmarie’s aunt, the pattern contains a charming story as well as instructions.

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 Jumper 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.

    Just finished Breda. Very easy pattern to follow. I’m amazed at Donna’s ability to figure out how to put the cables, front, back and in the end a beautiful pattern.
