Knitting Advent Calendar day 2: Eastenders knitting collection

Here's the other treasure I found - Eastenders patterns! Bet you can't wait. Now I'll have to warn you that I have actually never watched either Emmerdale or Eastenders, particularly not in the 80's. So my amusing comments will probably be limited to making guesses at possible storylines based on people's facial expressions!

Another round of the Horrendous Knitting Patterns from the 80's Advent Calendar (HKPft8AC)

For this year's Advent Calendar, I have some knitwear inspired by classic British soap operas for you. First up, the Emmerdale Farm Knitting book. Did you know that there was actually a range of knitting yarns made in Yorkshire called Emmerdale Yarns? The manufacturer is the producer of this pattern book.
