Winter Berries


Timeless and classic, this beautiful Coat and Russian style hat set is a must have.  An absolute show stopper it is ideal for the colder months.  Worked over a simple 2 row repeat, I would consider this workable for beginners and interesting enough for more experienced knitters.  You can substitute the eyelash and incorporate a garter stitch for a completely different look or knit the eyelash bands deeper for a really full and luxurious finish.

Pattern contains instructions for Coat and Hat in sizes 14″, – 22″ so approx Newborn to 2 years.  Finished chest size is approx 16 – 25″.

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.

    I’ve really enjoyed knitting this little set. It’s beautiful. The design is easy to knit. Perfect for any occasion. I’m just waiting for my buttons to arrive and it will be complete. Another amazing design by the team!!

    Working on this pattern at the moment in red with white trim. The design works up so quickly and looks beautiful. My daughter can’t wait for it to be finished for my grandaughter’s first visit to see Santa. I think I will be making it again, maybe in green with a fawn/tan trim.

    My grand daughter off for her first visit to see Santa in her Winter Berries. So many people have stopped my daughter to ask where she bought the outfit from. A lovely pattern and quick to make. I will definitely be making the next size for her.

    My favourite pattern ever, first time knitting with eyelash wool and turned out perfect. Knit in time for Easter 🐣 in a gorgeous lemon with white trim. Definitely going to knit for Christmas in a bigger size for my daughters niece. Can’t recommend this pattern enough, simply beautiful
