Vintage Knit: 25 Knitting and Crochet Patterns Refashioned for Today
Vintage Knit offers lovers of retro style 25 beautiful knitting patterns from the 1940s and 1950s, regraded to fit modern sizes (small, medium and large) and to knit with yarns easily available today. A short introduction describes each garment and suggests how to style it, followed by clear instructions for knitting and making up. Details of the exact yarn used are given to ensure perfect results at home. Each garment is photographed on a model, letting you see how the styles of the past can be part of a very up-to-date look. A useful section on equipment and terminology, plus a list of online resources, gives you everything you need to knit the patterns in the book.
