Knitting for World War 2 VE Day Commemorations

On 8th May 2020, it will be 75 years exactly since Victory in Europe was declared. It was a time of celebration but also a time to reflect on the sacrifice and courage that millions of people had shown during World War 2.

As the anniversary approaches, we reflect again on the great sacrifice everyone made during our darkest days. On the 8th May 1945,millions of people took to the streets to show their relief at the end of many years of war.

This is an opportunity for knitters to come together and mark the 75th anniversary with this series of knitted toys that can be displayed and gifted during the commemorations.

With that in mind, Knitting by Post are publishing new designs so that knitters can express their gratitude for those that made the ultimate sacrifice.

Please note that the Pilot and Land Girl will be published in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on our website on Fridays for updates.
