After inspecting the insides, it appears this knitting pattern from Marriner is for chunky yarn, and not chunky kids. It’s pretty awful, and the best/worst part is that they think someone might actually want kneepads and elbow pads knitted out of yarn! Believe it or not, this is the third post about knitting.
– Thanks to BPA for the tip.
There’s little information out there on R.V. Marriner, so they don’t appear to be around anymore. It was associated with the Knowle Mill in West Yorkshire, which was built in 1906, and while the building is still there, I’m not sure they are in business either. There is no copyright date. Judging by the skateboards and wonderful fashion sense, this pattern was made in the mid to late 70’s.
Awesome looking kid on the right, but why no knitted helmet?
That’s bad. I’ve seen better graphics on a TRS-80. I’m not sure, but I think that might be Skeletor.
Yes, the pattern contains plans for pads too!
Let’s get a closeup of the safety equipment.
You should wear these pads to protect you while skating, however, you must be very, very careful about how you wash them, because they’re delicate.
