Now I know this blog is all about free patterns, be they of the knitted or sewn variety, but today I wanted to share with you a pattern that I certainly think is worth spending your pennies on.
Did any of you see the BBC's wonderful Wartime Farm?If you did you'll no doubt of noticed Alex Langlands fancy fair isle pullover, I certainly did!

But not only have they created this fabulous Fair Isle pattern, in every size you could possibly need, but you'll also be giving to a worth while cause. The ladies have chosen to donate half the money from every sale to the Women's Land Army Tribute, who are raising money to create a long overdue monument to the Girls of the Women's Land Army!
The pattern costs a mere £5, with a whopping £2.50 of that going directly to the WLA Tribute, so purchasing the pattern should definitely leave you with a warm and woolly feeling inside and out - though the 'out' might take a little longer to achieve :)
I should point out that this is not a sponsored post, I am purely posting because I think its such a great idea and a worthwhile cause, oh and because it it combines my love of knitting (slow though it may be) and of women's wartime history!
