About ‘Charlee’
Charlee is a DK knitting pattern and based upon the Harper pattern.  I named it after Harper’s mum; who was one of the original team on my Facebook page. This is a really pretty pattern for Spring/Summer and also as an extra layer for Winter!  Personally I think the DK shows off the pattern much better as there is ‘more’.

My Irish roots have inspired my love of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Hat and Cardigan and has instructions to fit 16″.18″, 20″ and 22″ chest. 

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.

    This was the very first pattern I bought and knitted for my great granddaughter. I knitted the 20” size. It was easy to knit and the pattern was well written and easy to understand. This was a great choice to dip into Donna’s designs.

    I have knitted so many of these. Such a lovely pattern to follow. Can get confusing it you don’t use a row counter. This is my latest one knitted in lime green.

    This was my first pattern purchase and I’m delighted with it. The instructions are very clear and the pattern is really easy to follow, but result still looks pretty impressive. I’ll definitely be buying more patterns in the future.
