Off to School Knitting Pattern Pictures

We're delighted to be able to announce the launch of our Off to School Knitting Pattern, available for purchase right now as a Kindle Edition from the Amazon UK website.

A natural counterpart to the Graduation Celebration pattern that we launched last month, "Off to School" is our affectionate tribute to the legions of lovely Lollipop Ladies who come rain or shine (but mostly rain), cheerfully turn out every day to shepherd our little ones across the nation's busiest roads.

In this publication you'll find all of the detail you'll need to make your own miniature knitted Lollipop Lady Doll, together with two of her tiny charges - miniature knitted Schoolboy and Schoolgirl dolls.

Though small in stature, we've packed as much detail as possible into the design for our Lollipop Lady, including her traditional yellow coat and white hat, together with her indispensable Lollipop Sign, which is structured with cardboard and plastic drinking straws. Both schoolchildren come complete with brand new, first-day-back-at-school-smart uniforms and can of course be made up in whichever colours you please.

When made to the tension specified in the pattern, the Knitted Lollipop Lady measures approximately 17.5cm in height and the Knitted Schoolboy and Schoolgirl both measure approximately 13.5cm in height. The pattern is best suited to knitters with intermediate to advanced knitting skills.

If you'd like to read more about our Off to School pattern, then please head on over to our Patterns to Buy page, from where you can click on through to the pattern's dedicated page on the Amazon UK website.

In the meantime, whether it be at home or away, in rain or shine (but preferably shine!), we wish you all a lovely Summer holiday season and lots of success with all of your knitting projects. Have fun and happy knitting, everyone!
