Vote for your favourite WI vintage pattern

Knitcraft and The Women’s Institute have a happy partnership developing and selling the exclusive range of 7 WI Yarns in 75 amazing colours!  To celebrate 3 years of working together we have delved into the WI pattern archives, dating from the 1940s onwards, and picked out our favourite designs, which we would like to re-release for the modern knitter and crocheter, using the WI yarns.  As you can see, we have picked out far too many and we want you to get involved by voting for your favourite 5 designs and the winning patterns will be re-worked into new patterns.

All you need to do is browse through the photos below, make a note of the number of your top 5 and fill out the form…and we will get to work!

Voting ends 21st July so get voting and let all your friends know!

    Think I’ve got some of those patterns in the box of my late mum’s things.
    Even some coupon patterns.

    I’ve got a couple of these patterns and they really look good knitted up now.
