Eamonn cable pullover and hat - knitting pattern
This little outfit is perfect for not only looking stylish, but when your little one needs an extra layer for warmth. Slip it on over a button-down shirt, t-shirt or long-sleeved top. You can make it all one colour, or add in those leftover scraps for some colour contrast (as in the photo), or make a pink one with white contrast for your little girl – this is not just for boys! Eamonn is Irish for Edmund, and means “prosperous” or “prosperous protector.” The actual garment measures 20 (22, 24, 26) inches around at the chest. There are five 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 pullover and hat are 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!
