Zoe's Aran Sweater PDF knitting pattern for children
My little granddaughter loves wearing my handknits, and recently asked if I’d make her a special sweater in purple, her favourite colour. I thought I’d make it a little different and give the neckline some cable detail – she loves it! Make this in traditional cream, or your child’s favourite colour as I did. If you prefer a plain rib neck, then simply ignore the instructions to increase and cable, and continue with the rib for 10 more rows, then cast off in rib.

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.
