From the Book:
This breathtaking volume takes the knitter on a journey through knitting pattern history from 1930 to 1959. This substantial treasury contains 80 stunning, classic patterns for women, carefully chosen to offer the knitter the best of design from each period, alongside a thoughtfully balanced selection of projects; from beginner to advanced; cardigans and sweaters; dresses and accessories; stocking stitch, cables, Fair Isle and Lace.
With the patterns chronologically arranged the book also acts as a historical insight into this golden age of knitwear design.
Both the original and a re-written, updated and multi-sized adaption of each pattern is included, with beautiful full colour images, authentically styled and photographed.
A helpful chapter explaining vintage fit and finishing techniques complete this inspiring publication.
