Knitting patterns help schoolgirls save lives
The use of knitting patterns has helped a group of young girls from Buckinghamshire support a meaningful charity appeal.
More than 100 woolly hats have been knitted by pupils from Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School to help Save the Children’s campaign ‘Knit One Save One’, the Bucks Free Press reported.
The girls decided to pick up their needles and knitting patterns as it is estimated that half of babies in some parts of Tibet and Pakistan die from hyperthermia within a week of being born.
“For many students, the Knitting Club has provided the opportunity to learn a new skill while doing something for charity,” Fiona Bennett, who set up the school’s knitting club, told the newspaper.
Earlier this month, the Daily Mail reported how knitting patterns had helped boost learning across a number of subjects at a school in Kent.
Pupils at Worth Primary were found also to have been better behaved as a result of their teachers’ “return to traditional values”.
