In between the odd sausage roll, mince pie and Pernod and black I've knitted this for Malc.
I love Aran, because although it looks really complicated it's very easy to knit. This pattern has eight rows to it, but you only do the cable on one row, so all the other rows are knit all the knit stitches and purl all the purl stitches. I'm now knitting an Aran jumper for Cody, that's easier because it won't be so big. He's only two!!
