The pattern contains instructions for a Jacket and Traditional hat to fit 24″, 26″, 28″ and 30″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.  If you would like this pattern in smaller sizes, please purchase Willow instead.  Some experience is required.

Due to numerous requests, I have designed the original Willow pattern in a larger set of sizes!

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 24″, 26″, 28″ and 30″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.  For smaller sizes, please visit the original Willow pattern!

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.

    This is a fairly simple pattern to do if you are new to Aran knitting. Knits up really well and goes to bigger sizes.

    Beautiful cardigan pattern, so easy to follow and I’m loving the way the armholes are knitted straight. So easy to attach the sleeves nice and neatly. Also a good size range. Have bought 2 more patterns and looking forward to starting a new project soon for my granddaughters. 💕
