Hello! Welcome to Gift Horse

Created by award-winning designer Addy Whitfield, our ever-growing collection of knitting patterns has something for everyone- from absolute beginners upwards.

Each easily downloadable PDF is a full typed pattern complete with a list of everything you'll need (plus illustrations and templates and how to cast on/off and how to knit instructions for the beginner patterns) 

All knitting patterns are available for immediate download on ordering- as soon as you place your order you will be sent an email with a link to click to download your pattern

We know speedy delivery is important to our customers (you'll want to get knitting right away!) so all our haberdashery orders are sent out the same day by Royal Mail which usually takes about 2 working days.  

Dedicated to creating totally unique and quirky designs, we aim to show knitters of all ages that they can make something gorgeous even with basic knitting skills.
