Description

BRIDIE – for the more experienced in Aran cables.

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 24″ 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.

    After 60 years of knitting I was happy to learn something new with this pattern. Working with 2 cable needles was nowhere near as daunting as I expected! The instructions were clear and easy to follow, as all Donna’s patterns are. I think any moderately experienced knitter would be able to handle this pattern. I was more than happy with the result and will be making more in the future.

    I have been knitting for over 40 years and loved doing this one. I loved making this one. I’m an experienced knitter and the cable was a challenge particularly the middle twist part which needs two cable needles but the instructions were well written and explained it perfectly. I was short of time so committed the cable from the sleeve but this did not detract from the overall result as you can see

    Thank you

    Beautiful pattern as usual easy to follow just need a bit of experience with the double cable. Will certainly be doing this one again
