About ‘Emmylou’
Emmylou is a gorgeous little DK set named after a life-long friend’s granddaughter. The pattern is an absolute delight to knit and feedback has been it is one of those patterns you will keep returning to knit time and again as it can be blinged up or down as much as you desire!

My Irish roots have inspired my love of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Hat and Cardigan and has instructions to fit 18″, 20″ and 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 DK 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.

    This is the one pattern every knitter should have from beginner to expert, it knits like a dream, so fast and with such detail it looks like it’s complicated but it really isn’t. It’s an excellent pattern for beginners to learn cable and for experienced knitters to do on auto after a heavier knit 🙂 EmmyLou became my favourite pattern from the first time I knitted it.
