“Max” is a stunning Aran knit which I am super proud of.
My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations. Experience is required to knit this 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.

Love this pattern. Very easy to follow, but boy did it test my patience!! ( My fault not the pattern)
The finished product is beautiful. Mama to the little boy who has received it is constantly getting compliments on how beautiful it looks. Another colour is in the making!!
