This pattern has been named after a little girl who is the daughter of a business associate of my son – Kevin. Kevin and his family run a very well established art gallery that has been based in Kirkcaldy for over 25 years – Enid Hutt Gallery. A stones throw away from where my Granda spent his later life in Kirkcaldy; they stock the most beautiful art from a wide-range of artists; and some absolutely stunning feature mirrors too! I wanted to gift something special to Kevin – who works so hard running galleries in Kirkcaldy and Aberdeen and has such passion for making people happy – so I named a pattern after his new born daughter Eden! I presented Kevin and his wife with a hand-knitted baby box for Eden.
Instructions have been simplified and thoroughly tested by Annmarie. Experience is required for this pattern.
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.

This is the 1st pattern I actually knit from Donna’s designs it is so easy to follow and turned out exactly like the photos. Have become a big fan of Donnas patterns and would highly recommend.
