I'm Leeana Gardiner, and I design knitting patterns for babies, children and adults. I aim to design colourful patterns to keep you, the knitter, interested. I love cables and bright colours, anything to make a pattern fun and sometimes a little challenging.View all patterns by designer (23) »
Katren is the tender-hearted character from The Ancient Future by Traci Harding, a well-loved book of mine. When thinking of Katren, hearts come to mind, as she is a kind, sweet heart and the mother hen of the Chosen. Rags to riches, this cropped cardigan shows the elegance of being a lady with the practical long sleeves of a commoner. Designed to keep the chest and heart warm of your little one, the cute, single cable pattern extends down the arms to the cuff, showing everyone a mother's love, just like Katren's.
