I am searching for the David Dart pattern for Gromit. I think there are two publications of it, a Patons pamphlet and a Women's Weekly magazine publication, both out of print. Does anyone know where one of these can be found?
Thank you!

Did you try eBay? I found this info on Ravelry -

Patons #2239 for Gromit toy.
Patons #2207 is a Gromit Sweater
Patons #2240 is Shaun the Sheep

But I can't find it online anywhere. :shrug:

A double thank you... I didn't find Gromit, but mine was the winning bid for Shaun the Sheep, my second favorite. I got it from a UK knitting shop closing, so I'm actually the 'original' owner. happyhappyhappy

Hi,
I think you might mean Alan Dart- you might have more success if you search for Alan Dart on ebay, people are always auctioning off his patterns there. But beware- only buy the licensed character pattens from ebay (such as Grommit, Beatrix Potter etc) because all of his other ones- the elves, bears, realistic dogs and cats, penguins, mice characters, Christmas stuff etc is available much more cheaply from his site as a PDF download. www.alandart.co.uk (http://www.alandart.co.uk/pages/home)

I love his patterns- the engineering in the toys is absolutely amazing. I subscribed to Simply Knitting just for the Alan Dart patterns even though it costs a fortune because I'm in Australia and it's a UK publication. My Husbear gives it to me every year for Christmas.
