“Sheila” is my very first blanket design and  I am incredibly proud of it as it is named after my own Mammy.  It comes in 3 sizes to fit Car Seat, Pram and Cot – approx measurements below.  **PLEASE NOTE THAT PATTERN DOES NOT INCLUDE CARDIGAN OR BOOTEES**

“Sheila” 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!

  • 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 am absolutely thrilled to be announcing the release of my very first blanket, “Sheila”.  Knitted in Aran, it includes instructions to fit Car Seat, Pram and Cot and also a matching hat.

This blanket is a tribute to my mother who passed away March, 2021.  I have a hole in my soul which will never be filled but I know she would have been proud.  Linsey, one of the testers, said to me when she was knitting it, “Mammy will be going out for a walk with everyone when the child has this on their pram” and I loved that – so would Mammy.

Adding this blanket to the Mammy’s Love set would be a beautiful gift. (Pattern does not contain cardigan and bootees).

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.
