Saraid girls cable coat and hat - knitting pattern
This little coat and hat set will knit up quickly – it is mainly garter stitch with easy-to-follow cable lines to give it some personality. This doesn’t have to be for little girls, made up in a neutral colour it will make a cozy outfit for little lads as well. You can make it shorter to wear as a jacket, or longer for a knee-length coat. Saraid (pronounced Suh-ray) means “excellent.” The actual garment measures 21, 23 or 25 inches around at the chest. There are six 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!
