The London's Women's Institute (WI) recently announced their knitted corgi project to celebrate the upcoming Queen's Platinum Jubilee. WI members will be hiding cute knitted corgis named Winnie in their local communities with a special tag to allow members of the public to map where they have been found.

The corgi pattern was designed by Woolwich and Plumstead Roses WI member Hannah Joyce , who created the pup with sustainability in mind. WI members are encourage to knit the corgi pattern, which feature in the March issue of WI Life, and use up their fabric stash and other recycled materials to make the corgi.

Learning a new skill like knitting can also boost self-esteem, improve cognitive function; all the while giving you something positive and creative to focus on. While a knitting kit is great to provide all you need for a project we also have free toy knitting patterns for you to discover here.
