This breathtaking book takes you on a journey through knitting pattern history from 1930 to 1959. This 400 page 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 to sweaters; dresses to hats; stocking stitch to cable and from fair isle to 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. Additional information explaining vintage fit and finishing complete this inspiring publication.
This truly amazing book is for all knitters, young and old, of all abilities. It affords the opportunity not just to knit, but to knit a piece of the past and create an heirloom of the future.
