Hut 8 cardigan kit

This is a gorgeous little kit for the Hut 8 cardigan from our Bletchley Collection. It includes the A4 printed pattern (with complimentary free pdf download code), an ECY printed drawstring cotton project bag, a 5ml sachet of Soak (scent picked at random unless otherwise requested), and of course your 50g skeins of Milburn 4ply (85% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool/15% silk). Remember to pick your colour and size.

About the design
I was astounded to learn that more than 130 female civilians worked in secret at Bletchley, filing, punching holes and carrying out routine tasks. Without their administrative help the code cracking wouldn't have happened. This everyday classic cardigan is a tribute to these ladies.
