Rainbow The Tortoise.   

Knit a tortoise

Take your time.

Knit a tortoise

Help friends of mine.

Every step may be slow

But, like the tortoise that we know 

On and on and on we go.

Knit a tortoise it is fun

Knit a tortoise until we’ve won. 

Ideal project for everyone,

beginners, or keen knitters.

Why not set up a knit and chatter group?

Schools, Families, Brownies & Guides,

Women’s Institute.    

Everyone can learn to knit.

The pattern can be adapted to make different size tortoises. 

How about a key ring or footstool?

Use up all those odd balls of wool.

 

Visit our products page to order a tortoise or a pattern

 

 Materials required.

1 pair of 4mm knitting needles.

 

Small amounts of double knit wool.

For a true rainbow use the 7 colours.

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

 

You will also need extra wool for the back, head and legs, this can be any colour, whatever is your favourite.

 

A bag of stuffing - which could come from

an old pillow or cushion.

 

To sew up the tortoise you will need a wool needle.

 

 The pattern can be made with stripes of each colour or by using different shades of each colour.

Let your imagination guide you with variations on a theme.

 

Why not sell your tortoises and help raise funds for disabled children and disadvantaged people.

 

You can also

Enjoy a coffee morning.

Have a “Tortoise Day”

 

Write a story about your tortoise.

 

Send us your photographs to add to our

Travels of Rainbow photo gallery.

 

Every child is unique.

Every child matters.

 

 

Help us bring a smile into the lives of

children where every small step is a

giant milestone.

 

THANK YOU.
