This cable has to be one of my favourites – it makes such an impact. It is a lot easier than it looks. Knitted over 12 rows it has only one cable row! The testers loved it and felt it knitted up super quick. I would recommend reading the pattern through before commencing to get a real feel for it and if you are new, to familiarise yourself with layout. A lot of time has been spent simplifying and my ethos is, why give loads of instructions when it can be condensed – keep it simple. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations. This pattern is suitable for a beginner comfortable with cables and was updated 24.05.2021.

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.
