Stunning Set comprising of Cardigan and Hat.  “Lucia” was designed to celebrate the birth of the most beautiful little granddaughter of friends in Cork.  I wanted to create something really girlie that most knitters could tackle and this is it.  The cuffs and bottom are a smock stitch and the remainder is stocking stitch with a picot edge.  The hat, how beautiful is this, mirrors the smock stitch with a gorgeous brim with picot edging.

Lucia was a hotly anticipated pattern, released in 2022.  The video of little Lola was so cute that I just had to share it before releasing the pattern (Carol is one of our testers – Lola is her granddaughter!) and the video went viral!  At the time of writing, there’s been over one million views on the video on Facebook, 22,000 likes, loves and laughs – and over 2300 shares… Thanks Lola!!


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.

    Absolutely loved knitting Lucia. I used Patons dreamtime 8ply but unfortunately didn’t have enough for the hat. I found the pattern easy to folloe and a pleasure to knit
