Daddys Huggles


Just a little experience is required for this pattern folks!  Quite simple with just the one cable row!

The pattern contains instructions for a Jacket and Traditional hat to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.  By extending the length of the arms and body on the largest size, it would easily fit a 3 year old.  Some experience is required.

Daddys Huggles is an Aran Knitting Pattern available to purchase in PDF form for immediate download or to have printed and posted to you (UK only) for a flat fee of £2.95 to cover postage and packaging – so you’re always best ordering a couple of patterns together!


  • PDF downloads are available immediately after purchase and can be printed off on your own printer if you desire; links are valid for 7 days.
  • Printed & Posted patterns are printed in full colour on 120gsm office paper.  Patterns are sent 1st Class Royal Mail delivery in hard-backed envelopes and protective sleeves to ensure they arrive to you in the best possible condition.


My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.  Some experience is required to knit this beautiful pattern and it is suitable for a boy or girl.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Hat and Jacket has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.  By extending the length of the arms and body on the largest size, it would easily fit a 3 year old.

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.

    I have just finished this beautiful cardigan and I am delighted withe the result. As expected the pattern was easy to follow. A good knit for those who are starting off stages of cable knitting. It is suitable for both girls and boys and therefore a very versitile pattern to have in a collection

    Made this up for a new baby. The mother was delighted with it.
    I found it very easy to knit and not complicated. Ideal starter for a newbie.

    I have recently bought a few patterns from here and considering I have only really done baby shawls and ladies simple cardigans. I found this pattern easy to follow with no confusion. Onto the next project
