My patterns are written with the intention of appealing to all skill levels. They contain written instructions, with stitch explanations in the abbreviations section. Also diagrams and photographs are included to help as much as possible with construction of the item featured in each pattern.
Together in one purchase Baby Knitted Diamond Cardigan/Jacket and Hat patterns.
The hat pattern is written in four sizes, from 5-6lbs to 6-12 months of age.
Working from crown to band, the hat is made one square at a time, entrelac style. Stitches are picked up from two squares to form the next square or triangle. The hat is worked flat for a start and then joined by picking up the stitches for the last few squares and triangles from main part of the hat.
The cardigan/jacket pattern is also written in four sizes, 14 ins (35.5cm) chest to 20" (51cm) chest.
The patterns are easy to follow, only a basic knowledge of knitting is needed, cast on, knit, purl and decrease. They look lovely made with random or variegated yarn. Also ideal for using up oddments of yarn.
The yarn required is a baby double knitting weight, with a pair each of 4mm (UK No. 8) and 3.25mm (UK No. 10) knitting needles.
