Looking for another quick knit?  I have been asked several times for this pattern which I originally completed for my nephews – and as Dylan already has one named after him – this one is Rory.  Rory is a loveable wee rogue, he can charm the birds off the trees – typical Donegal boy.

Knitted in Stylecraft Chunky, this is a super knit for those cold days and it is a sweater as opposed to my usual cardigans. So, no buttons to decide on, less sewing up and less of those ends to weave in – I know most of us hate the sewing up part! Even better, it comes in 7 (SEVEN) sizes!

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 Cowl Neck Jumper and has instructions to fit 16″ – 28″ chest.

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.
