This popped up on the Facebook Community page and I thought it well worth a quick share. Its an article from http://descansodelescriba.blogspot.co.uk from back in 2012. It concerns an advert run in White Dwarf 71 (that's in 1985 for those of you who don't know) during a craze for popularist knitting patterns for well known programmes and products. Its seems Doctor Who had one, Dangermouse had one and, well yes, White Dwarf had one!
According to the article, they were designed by one Joy Gammon, an author who published a large number of knitting pattern books in the 1980s. Surely, one of these patterns must be the holy grail of Oldhammer clothing? Forget Zhu and his T-Shirts, I predict that this is going to become the NO.1 most wanted outfit for the forthcoming Oldhammer Weekender in August!
Only two gigantic challenges stand before us!
1) Locating a copy of the knitting pattern some thirty years after it was produced!
2) Finding someone who would be able to actually knit the thing!
Better get hunting!
