I'm trying to find an out of print pattern - Sirdar 271. And I'm in Canada, which doesn't help. Do any of you have a copy you could scan? I'm just looking for the pattern for style D. Help!!

I don't have it, but I suppose you've checked EBay?

eBay is my last resort 😊

Have you tried any knitting sites?

Or free patterns online?

Might find something similar if it's not essential to have the exact one.

There is a free app called Scribd that has all 25 pages of Sirdar 271 on. I have just downloaded the app, signed in and viewed the pattern book. Very nice Aran patterns.

Have you tried Ravelry ?

Good spot, WoollybacksWife. Would be great if more out-of-print stuff found its way to site like Scribd if Sirdar can't be arsed making them available electronically.

I've just found it on Ravelry. Didn't check if it's free or not, but you should be able to print it off within 5 minutes from now. Rav is free to join. Put Sirdar 271 into the pattern search box.

It's index on Ravelry but you can't buy it there.

Thanks WoollybacksWife. I'll download that now 😊

If you can't let us know. My aunt was a great knitter and I brought a lot of patterns back when we emptied the house I think I recognise that one. You can have it if I find it. I am de cluttering at the moment and my aunt and dad had cousins in Canada so I'm happy to send it if you can't download it.

I got it. Thanks everyone!

Glad you've got it.

Was having a look at online patterns yesterday & came across this that I might have to knit!

Oh good.
Diddl - love that. I am only a basic knitter. My next project is to knit a handbag and then felt it. I have a crocheted baby blanket to finish before that.
