Blog Post: I’ve written about the inspiration behind this pattern, click here to read more.

My design idea and advice: This pattern came to being because knitters were asking me to make Danny Brow from my Knitted With Love book (for babies and children up to 10 years old) into an adult garment. So ask and ye shall receive!
I used the jewel like colours of the WYS Gems DK but it’s been fun helping knitters chose their own shades and it seems some love the bright colours and some love undyed subtle shades, one knitter chose WYS Illustrator DK in one shade.
