|Patons 6150 - Blue Peter Sweaters|
A fellow volunteer at Lee Mills borrowed the pattern to show to her grandsons, and they were very keen to have Blue Peter sweaters of their own - the galleon emblem is still used for the programme, more than 40 years on. She used the pattern to machine knit sweaters for both of them - you can see a photo on her blog here.
It's not the usual vintage knit that you might find in books like Susan Crawford's A Stitch in Time, but it's great that 1960s patterns can still appeal to people today.
My Mam made me one of these and I loved it. I left it in a bus shelter in Coniston whilst Youth Hosteling in the Lake District. I was bereft. Would love to knit another one myself.ReplyDelete
How sad! Though I suppose if you hadn't lost it, it might have eventually worn out.Delete
