Child's pullover in the Duke pattern

Sanquhar patterns, with their discreet two colour changes are ideally suited for machine knitting.  The Sanquhar Knitwear Company was formed in 1987 and produced machine knitted garments in Merino and lambs wool using traditional patterns.  Sadly, the company is no longer in existence.   Example of a Sanquhar pattern child's pullover in blue and cream wool to illustrate the "Duke" design. This refers to the Dukes of Queensberry and later, Buccleuch, landowners in the parish of Sanquhar and probably the only nobility known directly to its inhabitants. This pattern is the most ostentatious and `showy' of them all. It has variations known as `squares' which may be later inventions and include, Rose, Trellis, Drum and Cornet.
