Donegal in Southern Ireland are where my family are from. My father was born in Killygordon and Mammy Castlefinn. All my childhood summers were spent at “The Cross” and when knitting this poncho I remember granny telling me a story…….
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.
Size Guide: The pattern for a Poncho and Hat has instructions to fit 6 months – 7 years. That hat is designed for either one or two pompoms. Embellishments have been handmade by Allison.
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.
