PJ’s Pattern


PJ’s Pattern was designed especially for Margo’s grandson, PJ.

The pattern contains instructions for a Jacket and Traditional hat 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 year old.  Some experience is required.

PJ’s Pattern is an Aran Knitting Pattern available to purchase in PDF form for immediate download or to have printed and posted to you (UK only) for a flat fee of £2.95 to cover postage and packaging – so you’re always best ordering a couple of patterns together!


  • PDF downloads are available immediately after purchase and can be printed off on your own printer if you desire; links are valid for 7 days.
  • Printed & Posted patterns are printed in full colour on 120gsm office paper.  Patterns are sent 1st Class Royal Mail delivery in hard-backed envelopes and protective sleeves to ensure they arrive to you in the best possible condition.


I absolutely adored creating this pattern and gained so much satisfaction watching it evolve as I was knitting.  This story is a bit different in how this creation came about.  A little boy called Calum was born in Donegal in January 2019 with a very rare heart defect.  My sister Tracy made me aware and asked would I like to donate some knits for him.  As always, the lovely ladies on my Facebook page rallied round and I was able to post a sizeable package to him.

I also wanted to raise some funds so I decided to put an offer of designing, knitting and naming a pattern for the winner of a raffle (essentially the first bespoke pattern creation)

A lovely lady called Margo won and she wished it to be named after her grandson PJ.  What made this even more special was I have knitted for PJ from birth and watched him grow, receiving regular updates and pics from Margo.  I hope you approve PJ!

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.  Some experience is required to knit this beautiful pattern and it is suitable for a boy or girl.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Hat and Jacket 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 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 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.

    I love this pattern. I actually made the largest size using DK yarn and it turned out brilliantly. Looking forward to making it in the aran yarn I bought just for this pattern.
