Declan baby and toddler sweater - knitting pattern
This little sweater will keep your tiny one cozy and warm. It is made to be roomy at the shoulders, making it comfy for busy little baby arms. Declan is an Irish name meaning “full of goodness” – but this sweater having a boy’s name doesn’t mean you can’t make it up for a sweet little girl! The actual garment measures 18, 20 or 22 inches around at the chest. There are four pages to the pattern, with written instructions and photographs. Double knitting 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!
