Harriet Hare

Meet Harriet Hare..

The lovely Laura Liddell from Flaxen Hare Designs asked me to have a play with her new kit, designed for teaching children to knit... and I fell in love with the lovely Harriet Hare.

The kit included Harriet, 5 balls of yarn (3 colour ways at the moment) needles and everything you need to get started, as well as some wonderful instructions. All of the pattern use just the knit stitch and then introduce basic shaping.

The scarf, short dress and skirt all come from the kit, and are all easy to do. The skirt uses short row shaping, but beautifully explained so that it is so easy.

There are also instructions for a bag, pants, tshirt and boots.

Of course I couldn't resist making up my own pieces including this simple cable jumper,

and a crochet hat!


  1. I have a Harriet Hare too! But I'm sticking to the instructions 'cos I need them! Love the cable sweater and cute hat
