We don’t see this one enough and it is stunning, trust me.  The texture makes it a beautifully cosy knit.

The pattern contains instructions for a Jacket and Teabag hat to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.

Fountainstown Beach Fountainstown is on the coast of Co Cork very near to Crosshaven and Carrigaline and a beautiful spot.  It has recently been in the news for the bioluminescent plankton lighting up the water – just beautiful.

This pattern is a 12 row repeat and despite taking many pictures I was unable to capture just how lovely it is.  I don’t filter my photos as I like to show customers the true result.

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 Jacket and has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.  This is an Aran knit pattern and will fit 0-2 Year Olds.

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.
