Baby hat, mittens and booties - knitting pattern

A just-for-fun little cabled hat with tassels, along with cozy mittens to keep small hands toasty warm. You can skip the tassels on the hat if you wish, or you may even want to add pom-poms. You can make a cord for the mittens if your little one has a tendency to lose them. The bootees are easy to make on two needles, and have cable detail on the top of the foot. Caoimhe is pronounced Kee-vah or Kwee-vah, and means precious or beautiful. There are seven pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. Worsted yarn was used for the pictured garment, you don't need to use the yarn specified as long as you make sure that you check the gauge. The entire set is knit flat, so only straight needles are required. There are three sizes: finished circumference of hat: 13 (15, 19)” approximately, unstretched

I learned to knit as a child living in both Ireland and England. I love the intricate work of aran garments, but it was only when my first grandchild came along that I began to design for babies and children - for her first child my daughter had wanted a tiny sweater with a particular aran stitch on the front, I couldn't find a pattern so decided to make one up!
