Following feedback from customers, I was asked to design a unisex set for beginners. “Robin” is the result. The pattern was name after the grandson of Kitty (one of our knitters) who lives in Co Cork.
The short sleeved top can be customised to your own taste and worn on its own. The Playsuit is a very comfortable size for baby allowing plenty of movement and you can really have fun adding embellishments – I have now added hand made ones to the site so you can find everything in one place. The booties are so sweet and a lovely shape and again can be customised to your requirements.

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.
