“Drake’s Pool” has been named after a tranquil and absolutely stunning area between Crosshaven and Carrigaline in Co Cork. The story of Drake’s Pool is on the pattern and another of the areas I love to vistit.
My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations. Experience is required to knit this pattern.
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 3/4 year old. Always measure the child prior to starting your project.
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.
