Myrtelville is a beautiful spot in West Cork and somewhere I went regularly when I was young. It is popular for the beach there but probably more well known for Bunnyconnellan’s, known affectionally as “Bunnies”, the restaurant there. It has an amazing view of the ships coming out of Cork harbour and the sea itself. I remember when it was a pub and we would sit by the fireside when the nights were getting colder eating chicken toasties and drinking glasses of lager.
My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations. This pattern is suitable for an intermediate knitter.
Size Guide: The pattern for a Cardigan and Hat (with optional ear flaps) and includes instructions for 5 sizes (6 months – 5 years).
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.
