“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.
