Dysart is a lovely little set which includes instructions for Cardigan and Hat.  More fitted than my usual Aran designs, it is a straight forward 8 row repeat.  Suitable for boys and girls, it comes in chest size 16″ – 22″.  Bootees and mittens are available as a free download on website and will match this set beautifully. 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.

Dysart is a lovely set of Cardigan 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.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Hat and Hoodie has instructions to fit 16″ to 22″ chest.  Always measure the child prior to starting your project as all children are different.

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.

    Another beautiful design. I enjoyed this. It’s a quick knit, anyone can do it, and the result is gorgeous.
