Pattern description from The Celtic Collection: “I like my designs to fit as many sizes as possible. Once I am working on a theme then I will often make a slightly different version to fit a child. The centre sleeve panel of Kilronan is the perfect size and scale for the main panel of this child’s sweater. The style is suitable casual in a tweed yarn worked double for the toughest wear, with just a touch of chenille in the check patterned borders.”
