“Keep Calm and Carry On” Banner to weave and spool knit

During the second world war, the British people were encouraged to hang on in a challenging time by posters that said: ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’.

Well, times are challenging again, and the advice to ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ is still worthy!
So, I decided to weave a banner with these notable words emblazoned on it.
I made a pattern with lots of photos and step by step how-to’s. (It’s what I do well 😀 )

I think that it would make a wonderful gift. And it’s fun to make, too!
I wove it on a  potholder loom, but any loom that gives you a 6 or 7 inch square would work just fine.

If you are not a fan of spool knitting (although, in the pattern,  I show how to quickly spool knit on 3 pegs) then you might want to buy yourself a Latchet Lucet from Dewberry Ridge looms: LINK
The pdf pattern can be ordered for $5 (paypal or etransfer) by sending me an email Contact
