About ‘Mason’
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.

    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.

    Love this pattern, easy 4 row pattern yet very effective finish. Will certainly be knitting again. Finished it with Yogi buttons bought recently from Donna, they just finished it off perfectly.
