Mason is a pattern which has been named after my long time friend in Cork, Janet’s grandson. This is a simple waffle stitch so ideal for beginners and the size starts at prem so can be knitted for a doll.
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 Cardigan and has instructions to fit 12″, 14″, 16″.18″, 20″ and 22″ chest – 6 sizes!
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.

Aww wee Mason, I loved doing this one, the pattern was really easy to follow & knitted up really quickly, I’ve added some wee mitts & bootees & I’ve also done another version of the hat, Looking forward to doing this again in every colour

Just done this for a friend who wanted it for her niece. I did it in white with a mint green edge.

I’ve knitted several of these. It’s a lovely simple pattern with very clear instructions and it knits up beautifully. Unfortunately it won’t allow me to attach a photo.
