I just love this one and a good challenge for beginners to cable knitting.

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

Letterkenny is the largest and  possibly the best known town in Co. Donegal, more so than Donegal town itself.  Like most other places, the retail parks outside the town are taking over from the main street itself although I still like to walk through and go into the shops that have been there for years though, sadly, there are very few of them now.

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 0-3 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.

    Letterkenny is the first of, not only an Aran pattern which I attempted, but also of one designed by Donna. I was so proud of the result. The pattern was easy to follow(as are all the subsequent patterns I have since bought from Donna ). It inspired me attempt more and I now have the knitting bug!

    Really enjoyed knitting Letterkenny, Donna provides clear instructions and this pattern was no exception. Family and friends are in awe of hand knits for babies and toddlers.

    I love knitting Letterkenny. An easy to follow pattern for anyone. I was asked to make a blanket to match and I managed to work it out.
