Mary Anne McGroarty is simply stunning DK knit, perfect for the cooler Summer months and cosy enough for Winter. All the testers loved this pattern which has instructions for Cardigan, Headband and Shoes and suitable for boys and girls – the cardigan is anyway!!
My Irish roots have inspired my love of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.
Size Guide: The pattern has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″and 22″ chest. This is approx ages birth to 2-3 years depending on size of child, best practice is to measure the child prior to starting.
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.

brilliant pattern, ideal for advanced/experienced knitters. it was a challenge on the first pattern, after that it was a breeze to knit. looking forward to some more challenges , keep up the good work ladies xx

So enjoyed this. Took a little patience till the pattern clicked in my mind but we’ll worth it. Unfortunately I cannot send picture as it keeps telling me file too big and I don’t know how to sort it.

I really enjoyed this one. Pattern quite easy to read but took a while to get the pattern in my head.
