Knitting to commemorate the First World War


When WAG Screen decided to make a film to mark the Centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, we had no idea that we would meet with so much generosity and love. I can think of no better way to mark such a poignant anniversary. We now have a team of over 250 knitters offering their expertise, knowledge, knitting time and even dipping into their own stashes to help. We also have wool donated from Rowan Wool, Texere, Jamiesons of Shetland, Frangipani aka and Blacker (thank you all). However, just as we had no idea that this wonderful knitting project would blossom from our original plan, we hadn’t budgeted for it either and the postage alone is considerable! Please help us either directly or by posting the link to our Kickstarter campaign. Thank you xx

Knitting designer Liz Lovick has modernised the 1918 pattern below for today’s knitter, with all the extra information required as well as yarn and needle sizes. We have made it part of our Kickstarter fundraiser:  Check out the updates there for more. £15.00 donation is all that is required.

    Hi Pauline, I’ve put a post on my weblog and will share on my Fb page. Every little helps. As I said in my note, I’ve also posted the link to two friends who are leaders of knit and natter groups.

    I am loving so many of the patterns that are being knitted up on this project and nice to see we can buy some, such a fab pattern!
