SKIBBEREEN is a gorgeous double breasted Cardigan with matching Hat.  There is also instructions for 2 different patterns on the sleeves as well as an optional strap for the Hat. SKIBBEREEN comes in chest size 18″ – 26″, the largest size completing at size 29.5″.  It is a smart, well constructed pattern knitted in one piece to armhole shaping.

Bootees and mittens are available as a free download on website.

Knitted on straight needles.

I am reluctant to state ages for sizes and those suggested on pattern are for guidance only – as children get older, best to go by chest size then measure neck to where you wish it to end and adjust accordingly.  If the child is slim with long body, knit to appropriate chest size and extend length before shaping for armholes.

SKIBBEREEN is a gorgeous double breasted Cardigan with matching Hat.

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Jacket and Cardigan has instructions to fit 18″ to 26″ chest.  Always measure the child prior to starting your project as all children are different.

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.
