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.

Alexandra Mary Douglas –
This and the other VE Day Heroes patterns are awesome, such a joy to knit. Patterns are straightforward and easy (as expected from The Knitting Post) and the finished result is perfect. Hope that you look at developing other commemorative series such as these. Many thanks
