Donal child's traditional aran sweater + hat PDF knitting pattern


This is a PDF knitting pattern which will be sent to your e-mail address from - please check your junk folder just in case! Depending on where you are in the world, it may take a few hours for the pattern to reach you if you are in a completely different time-zone and your order arrives during my nighttime.
This traditonal aran sweater and matching hat will be a warm and cosy addition to your little one’s wardrobe. Make it in cream for a completely traditional look, or in any colour to match your child’s personality. I used pure wool because I had just enough to make this set, but you may wish to use a washable yarn that will withstand messy playtime! Donal (pronounced Doe-nall) means “great chief” or “ruler of the world.”

To keep postage costs down for the buyer, I ship by the most economical method - unless the buyer is in a rush, then I will find the expedient way.

I ship from Canada, and small packages must fit through a slot at the post office in order to qualify for reasonable postage rates. For example, a pair of earrings in a small jewellery box will cost four times the postage as the same pair wrapped securely in bubble wrap and tissue paper - even if both packages weigh the same. For this reason, I will not use jewellery boxes when shipping.

Unless something is damaged in shipping, I will not do returns nor exchanges.
