DERRY is a bold new style I wanted to try out and I love the effect.  The back “V” is transferred on to both fronts resulting in a real statement piece.  I used the simple honeycomb cable along with moss stitch and the technique to achieve the shape is very simple once you get going.  Finished off with a collar, this Jacket and Hat set will suit both boys and girls and comes in chest size 18″ – 24″.  Bootees and mittens are available as a free download on website. Knitted on straight needles.

I am reluctant to state ages for sizes and those suggested on pattern are for guidance only – as children get older, best to go by chest size then measure neck to where you wish it to end and adjust accordingly.

DERRY is a striking set of Jacket and matching Hat.

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

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.

    Knitted for my grandson he looks lovely and snug in it. Easy pattern to follow but might need to have some experience when knitting the back
