tortoise and hare sweater

The Tortoise and Hare Sweater is available for £3.95

This pattern includes full colour charts, schematic, and instructions for unfamiliar techniques (vikkel braids; Sunday short rows; steeks). The design is inspired by Aesop’s fable of the tortoise and the hare, which has assumed a singular relevance for me as I recover from the stroke I suffered early in 2010.

Sizing:Size 1 (30-32 inches), Size 2 (34-36 inches), Size 3 (38-40 inches) Size 4 (42-44 inches)

yarn: Blacker Designs 4ply Shetland in 4 shades: 1(760), 2(950), 3(1050), 4(1150) yards of Main colour; 1(180), 2(190), 3(210), 4(220) yards of colour 1; 1(180), 2(190), 3(210), 4(220) yards of colour 2; and 1(70), 2(80), 3(90), 4(100) yards of colour 3
