A lovely lady contacted me about my designs/names and we got chatting and it transpired she knew Crosshaven very well. She also knew my father and like me, spent wonderful summers there back in the 70’s. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed chatting to her and the memories she invoked and I decided to name this pattern after her as it all seemed to connect. She really gave me inspiration. Life is like that sometimes, people come into your life out the blue and it is for a reason. We plan to meet up next time I am in Cork and now I am also chatting to her sister Kitty who is also a knitting addict! Small world.
My Irish roots have inspired my love of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.
Size Guide: The pattern contains instructions to knit dress, beret and shoes to fit 16-18″, 18-20″, 20-22″ chest.
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 Double Knitting 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 DK for this pattern.
