I don’t claim any super-fan status for David Bowie. Like so many people, I enjoyed a lot of his music (surely part of the soundtrack to most of our childhoods) and in particular, loved the way his singular, evolving style reflected and influenced the wider cultural landscape on these shores and beyond. I guess that’s why I ended up designing this headband and mitts called ‘Ziggy’ a couple of years back.
What’s been clear, reading the comments and blogs of many people I like and admire today, is that he meant a huge amount to a lot of people, for reasons from the light-hearted to the profound. With that in mind, there’s no way I’d be releasing this pattern to make money. I’ve put it up on Ravelry as a free download, but I’m asking for people to donate to Macmillan Cancer Care here (or any cancer care charity they prefer) in exchange. Thanks in advance!
