• Free knitting pattern - the Dearcán beanie!

    Free knitting pattern which I designed : )
  • Tiny baby hats!

    I was recently contacted by a lovely customer who wanted a hat sized for a newborn baby, based on a (adult-sized) hat I currently have in my shop. Look how tiny it turned out!
  • Classic Cable Beanie

    I just published the Classic Cable Beanie - which is exactly what the name suggests, a classic style of beanie with vertical cables.
  • New pattern - the Aran Lattice Beanie!

    I'm delighted to have this new pattern ready to share - the Aran Lattice Beanie features criss-cross narrow cables, which create a wonderful texture (and is much easier to knit than it looks!)
  • Now on Tumblr too!

    It's a very rainy night here, so what better time to get online and try something new again! I've started a Tumblr blog, under the name AranAccessories. I am a complete newbie to Tumblr, so if anyone has any advice it would be most welcome!
  • Aran Sunshine

    I've been lucky to enjoy (mostly!) wonderful weather while I've been back on Inis Oírr! I'll be restocking my shop very soon with lots of great knits I've been working on.
  • Wild flowers

    I thought I'd share with you some of the beautiful wild flowers I saw on my walk yesterday on Inis Oírr. They grow wild on the road verges. A different one every few steps!
  • MyIrelandBox July subscription

    MyIrelandBox send beautifully curated items from Ireland to subscribers all over the world. I'm delighted to say that AranAccessories were part of July's box! I hope subscribers were pleased with their handknitted Aran bookmarks : )
  • Simple Cable Beanie

    I'm delighted to add another beanie hat pattern; a simplified version of the Small Spiral Cable Beanie which would make a great cabling project for beginners. Only one circular knitting needle needed, and (if you play your yarn cards right!) only one skein of yarn (but make sure that yarn has about 100 metres!)
