This pattern was given to me by

H Fleming of the Dorcas Group

Crieff Parish Church

 

 

It is used by Blythswood and Oxfam

Charities as it is a very basic

simple pattern which needs no buttons or

other fastenings

 

 

The pattern can be adapted to use any type of wool by using suitable needles and adjusting number of stitches.
