In this months issue, Let’s Knit magazine is commemorating the 100th Anniversary of World War I by supporting The Royal British Legion. The cover mounted kit comes with two exclusive patterns created by Jane.
‘Flanders Fields’ is a vintage style tea cosy with a poppy motif. The pattern includes instructions for both intarsia or swiss-darning the motif.
Flanders Fields and Poppy Brooches
The second pattern uses the remaining yarn to create two poppies with which to make commemorative brooches.
With the hot weather it seems like November is far away, but it’s not too early to get prepared. Please do knit the patterns and perhaps sell them in support of The Royal British Legion.
