Do You Love Sanquhar Patterns?

If so, check this out:


Sanquhar Gloves: A Living Scottish Tradition

This is an online exhibition, presented by the Center for Knit and Crochet. (I just became a member of the Center for Knit and Crochet, by the way. Check out their vision statement!)

The online Sanquhar Glove Exhibition is fantastic — pretty much everything there is about this wonderful and unique knitting style.

I would like to point out the section called “Beyond the Glove.” Why? Because my Sanquhar Cowl is featured there! Slide #3. 🙂

A big thank-you to the creators of this fabulous resource for including me! In celebration, you can purchase my Sanquhar Cowl pattern on Ravelry for half-price ($2.50) using the code:


The special price will be good for the rest of this week, through Saturday night until midnight, Eastern time, January 23, 2016.

Loki sez:


Such a deal!

    Thanks for this link. Your cowl inspired me to knit two hats in this style. Gave one away and wear my favorite.

  7. Thanks, Wendy, both for the info on the exhibition and the Centre for Knit and Crochet, and the discount on the pattern. It’s a great pattern and a great idea; I thought so at the time. Anyway, a copy of the pattern now belongs to me. Cheers!

  8. I will have to check the exhibit out. I do love the look, but have to learn some colorwork techniques before tackling such amazing pieces.

    Congratulations Wendy. So so deserve recognition and applause for your lovely designs. I had purchased the pattern when you first posted it, it may have been for the same price as you are offering it now, not sure, but I’m glad I have the pattern regardless of price.

  10. Congratulations on the inclusion!

    Hope you are cozy at home busy knitting during the blizzard. Looks like you are at the epicenter of this one.

  11. Thanks for the information. As always, spot on. Loved the video that went with the display, have been mispronouncing the pattern name. will be correcting that straightaway.

    Thank you for such a great curation of information on Sanquhar gloves. They are my go to gift for special folk, daughter, Mum, sister. My sister has a family copy of the People’s Friend pattern and I use that, the WI patterns and one by Tata and Tatao (great chart) and Tom of Holland’s alphabet charts or the alphabet charts from Fairlisle knitting books. to craft my gloves. 1.5mm knit pro Karbonz and Jamieson and Smith Shetland 2ply lace weight are my preferred materials. There is an amazing pair of Sanquhar inspired brown and dream driving gauntlets (elbow length with a mitten flap to make them extra warm) in the Shetland museum.

  13. Wendy, thank you for the link! What a great exhibition-and how awesome is it that it’s online?! Even more awesome is your cowl!
