This pattern is designed to celebrate Swimathon 2020, a charity swim to raise money for Cancer Research and Marie Curie nurses. £2 of every pattern sale will be donated to this in sponsorship of Louise's efforts swimming 5K (200 lengths of a 25m pool) in March 2020.
The pattern is inspired by the movement through water, the splashes, bubbles and the outlining lane ropes. It uses floral Bedfordshire techniques, including a twisted gimp down the centre of the cloth stitch in the centre, something seen regularly in Thomas Lester designs but rarely seen in more modern Bedfordshire designs today.
Will also be available in the next few days as a Ready to work pattern... watch for this if you have difficulty in preparing your own pricking.
