Willow

$10.71$12.51

DESIGNED ESPECIALLY FOR BEGINNERS BUT INTERESTING ENOUGH FOR MORE EXPERIENCED KNITTERS.

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.

Description

Willow is the granddaughter and great granddaughter of two very good friends of mine from Carrigaline in Co Cork, Mary and Lynda Glavin. She is such a beautiful child and this pattern is my little contribution to mark her birth.

This pattern is ideal for someone wanting to try knitting with Aran and cables and  from 8 rows there is only one cable row.  In saying that, the finished pattern is very effective and unisex so perfect for a new baby if you don’t know where it is to be a boy or girl!

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.

    Another perfect example of Donna’s Designer Patterns. Willow is so lovely to knit. One of my early makes, it was greatly received and I was asked to knit more. I’ve never come across a team as dedicated to their work as this lovely bunch of ladies. Any help you need, they are more than willing to advise and answer any questions you have. I’m so lucky to have come across the group. Thank you ladies 🥰
