My granda wore a cap his entire adult life and we still have one of them. Like Mammy, he had a magnificent posture and loved to wear a waistcoat too so seemed appropriate I named this pattern after him. Inspired by Peaky Blinders, this Aran knit captures the style from that era. Super cute, this is also suitable for a girl.

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 Waistcoat has instructions to ft 16″, 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 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.
