Pullover in the Duke pattern

Example of a Sanquhar pattern pullover in black and white 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.   This pullover was made by Mrs Jean Williamson from Sanquhar, using a "People's Friend" pattern, c1950s.
