Lisa Marie is my great niece and she is adorable. She lives with her mummy Grace in Carrigaline, Co Cork. She is a little chatterbox, very insightful for her age, brilliant at impersonating people and has the most fertile imagination ever. She is my substitute granddaughter, she is my heart.
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 Jacket has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest and the end product is larger to give added comfort for your little one.
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.
