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.

  1. Hi Kate ,
    I am nearly completing the Gloves version of your Tortoise and Hare Version and have loved every minute knitting it. Very enjoyable it has also been a learning curve experience as I have never made part fingers on gloves it has been challenging for me. Once doing it , found it quite easy. Just getting my head round how to do it.
    I am looking forward to learning to steek as I have never ever been brave enough to do it so I am going to try doing it first on a scarf one of your designs in Insipred by Islay- Singing Sands.
    Then attempt on a cardigan :)



  2. Your designs are beautiful and my daughter loves her owl jumper. Does the tortoise & hare pattern have an option for long sleeves?
