Knitted in Stylecraft Chunky, this cosy knit has been named after a very unexpected little man who arrived into the world in 2020.  After the initial shock, the family wondered how they ever survived without him.  Oliver is Sylvia’s grandson and she is one proud Granny!  Sylvia is part of the team that form our Facebook page and I wanted to create something fast to mark his arrival!

This set comprises of Jacket, Traditional Hat and T-Bag hat.  I’ve also added in Bootees.

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 Jacket and has instructions to fit 16″, 18″, 20″ and 22″ chest and the end product is larger as it is a jacket.  By extending the length of the arms and body on the largest size, it would easily fit a 3/4 year old.

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 Chunky 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 Chunky for this pattern.
