We had a tortoiseshell coloured cat called Bracken who lived up to the “naughtie tortie” label. It seems tortoiseshell cats (which are always female!!!) have a reputation for being difficult – she had a red star by her name at our Vet’s clinic. I loved her ’though as far as she was concerned I was just warm furniture and the wielder of the tin-opener!

Sadly she died so I decided to knit a scarf in remembrance.

It was fun to make even though it took several tries to get the head as I wanted. Twice I was accosted when out shopping by people demanding to know where I bought it.

This was the first pattern I wrote down trying to remember after it was finished so I have to warn that I can’t guarantee it, reading through it now makes me amazed that it worked!!

I used 2 strands of and changed colour when it seemed appropriate! The tension (gauge) didn’t matter.
