Here is the letter 'P', knitted by Louise.
And here is the letter 'S', knitted by Zarah.
P and S stand for "POETRY SOCIETY".
We are delighted to be helping the Poetry Society design a pattern of the alphabet for knitters, who are joining together to knit a giant poem!
To join in with this project, go to
and they will send you a pattern.
All letters must be worked in DK pure wool, on 4mm needles, with a dark letter and lighter background.
The poem is a secret. It's a terrible secret to have to keep, because it is such a beautiful poem, I'm dying to tell you, but I won't, because after knitting lots of letters, when you see them all stitched together, you will, like me,
have little goose bumps all down your back.
