About ‘Kinsale’
Kinsale is a beautiful fishing town in Co Cork and packed over the Summer months with holiday makers and visitors.  I simply wanted to design an outfit named after this gorgeous little town. 
My Irish roots have inspired my love of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  This pattern for a Hat, Cardigan, Shortees and Booties and has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest.  Like most of my designs this knit is unisex and lace can be added to give a pretty effect for your little prince or princess!

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.

    Donna’s pattern are great and very easy to follow and customer care is excellent when you make a mistake. Very helpful and will recommend her patterns to all my knitting friends

    This pattern looks cute with the matching pants, if donna’s other patterns I’ve bought are anything to go by, it should be easy to follow the pattern and knit up. Thank you Donna for such a gorgeous selection of unique patterns!

    I absolutely loved the outcome of my Kinsale set. The pattern was easy to follow. Easy to knit. Like all of Donna’s patterns, you can make little changes to make it your way. Fantastic design team. If you ever need any help, they’re so happy to help.

    Knitted this pattern a few times the whole set is fantastic and easy to follow. I’ve done it using ribbon and a contrasting colour on the cardigan both look great 😊
