Support Medécins San Frontières with Debbie's p/hop sock

Medecins Sans Frontieres logo

Debbie Tomkies has donated her new Chevron De Paix sock pattern to the p/hop project to raise funds for Medecins Sans Frontieres

Debbie Tomkies' new Chevron De Paix pattern has delicate bands of lacy Vs encircling the leg of this dainty sock, with the patterning extending down the foot. Debbie has donated the pattern to the p/hop project to riase funds for Medecins Sans Frontieres

Debbie Tomkies has just completed her Chevron De Paix sock pattern designed specially for the p/hop project. p/hop is the brainchild of Natalie Fergie of the YarnYard - over to you, Natalie!

"p/hop (although it sounds like a rapper's name) means pennies per hour of pleasure. It is a fundraiser for the international medical aid organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). Lovely designers from all over the place have pledged to donate patterns to MSF, which you can download for free! However, once you have your newly knitted/crocheted scarf/socks/sweater in hand, we ask you to donate an amount that corresponds to the amount of pleasure you got from making it... I think I've made this sound more complicated than it is! Hopefully you know what I mean..."

Debbie hopes that you will enjoy making your socks as much as she enjoyed designing them and will consider the pattern worthy of a donation, large or small, to MSF. Debbie would also like to say thank you to her pattern testers Franney, Nora and Debbie - great work girls!

To see all the patterns available so far, to make a donation or simply to find out more about the p/hop project, please click here to visit the MSF p/hop page or click here to vist the p/hop blog
