Vintage knitting patterns from the 1930s, '40s and '50s have a timeless, irresistible chic. Their designs for women are fabulously feminine, flattering and snug. But trying to knit up original patterns is too often a frustrating experience: they can be highly complicated; they use yarns that are no longer available; and the sizes are too small for our bigger modern physiques. That’s where this book comes in.
Lise-Lotte Lystrup has cleverly updated twenty-one genuine period designs for the modern knitter. The patterns have been subtly simplified; they use easily sourced modern yarns; and they give instructions for six different sizes, 32–42 in. (81–107 cm). The result is a delightful celebration of vintage style for today’s knitter. This book is guaranteed to inspire you to take up your needles in pursuit of the authentic elegance of a bygone era.
'With such exciting patterns to inspire me, what better reason to pick up my needles and start knitting?'
