“Laylah” is beautiful Aran unisex design, instructions for Cardigan and Hat (matching Bootees can be downloaded for free!).

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

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Hat and Jumper has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″, 22″ and 24″ chest.  Always measure the child prior to starting your project as all children are different.

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.

    I have knitted this pattern for my great granddaughter. As with all of Donna’s patterns it turned out beautifully. I am happy to have found this site. And most of all, all the wonderful ladies who run it. Thank you Donna and Annmarie.

    I love ‘designed by Donna’ . Absolutely wonderful patterns. The ladies help ‘lost’ knitters with patience and put them back on the right track. This is a cardigan I knitted for my great granddaughter, one of Donna’s designs.

      I love that expression, “lost knitters” – we have all been there. You yourself are a delight. Thank you Florence – Donna xx

    Laylah is such a pretty pattern to knit. I love it and it has become one of my favourite go to patterns to knit as gifts.
