Hannah was my maternal grandmother and brought up in the Irish speaking parish of Gweedore, Co Donegal, the cradle of Irish culture. Granny was a beautiful knitter and could figure out a pattern by sight and was particularly gifted in Fair Isle knitting. This playsuit is in DK.
My Irish roots have inspired my love of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.
Size Guide: The pattern has instructions for a Playsuit, Shoes and Hairband to fit 16″, 18″, 20″, 22″ and 24″ chest approx.
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 Chunky 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 Chunky for this pattern.

I made this for a friend’s baby. She loved it so much I went on to make two more for a set of twin girls. It’s so easy to make once you know where to place the borders. I enjoy making this a lot. If you’re looking to make a romper for a new baby, this is the pattern to buy. You can put your own embellishments on to make it unique to you. It’s a must buy. I highly recommend this set.
