Daithi baby and toddler sweater - knitting pattern
This little sweater is sure to keep your baby cozy – the aran pattern acts like layers to keep in the warmth. The body of the sweater is roomy enough to go over a t-shirt or onesie, and the yarn used in the sample is soft and comfy for tiny ones. This pattern would suit experienced - and intermediate knitters who would like a challenge! The actual garment measures 20, 22 or 24 inches around at the chest. There are four 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 garment is knit flat, so only straight needles are required.

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!
