Yes free, if you knit or crochet a 20cm square for Worldwide Knit in Public Day. The yarn has kindly been donated by Bergère de France, and can be collected from the shop and returned in squares any time before Saturday 10 June. On that day, you are also cordially invited to the shop to knit or crochet a last one and enjoy some coffee and cake. The squares have a dual purpose, first as bunting for the Jo Cox Foundation's street parties on 17 June, then taken down, washed and sewn together as blankets for Knit for Peace UK.

Have a look at for full details, and how to win a prize for the longest bunting!
