1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! 21 Feb 2009
I was extremely disappointed to find this book is only 18 x 14cm. Tiny! Also, I only liked a couple of the designs, they really are a bit too vintage for most people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but... 28 Aug 2001
By Jennifer Dickinson - Published on Amazon.com
... not as good as the other "On the Go" books. Starting with the good points, the Vogue Knitting folks continue to provide easy-to-follow instructions, great photographs and some cute projects. However, I was disappointed with the lack of variety. I was hoping to find gorgeous angora twinsets, jewelneck pullovers, etc., but most of the patterns were for kids and babies; not much help if you want vintage items for adults. Even though the patterns were cute, nothing really leapt out at me, as if to say "you have to make this next!" Similarly, none of the items struck me as being from a particular era, more of a generic late 50s-early 60s style redux. There was a lot of knitting going on before and after this period, and it would have been nice to have a sampling that spanned a bit more time. I think an expanded "Vintage Knits" would be better suited to one of VK's big collections, rather than an "On the Go" format. In short, pick this one up for kid's things, but if you are expecting a variety of truly vintage patterns, or want to make vintage knits for yourself, this probably isn't the best choice for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars very so-so 21 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I knew there were a few really cute patterns in it I wanted. There's a really lovely bed sweater, too cute bunny booties for babies and a shoulderette. A lot of the patterns are really ugly though...a cropped sweater? No thanks. Reading through the book though I'm noticing that the directions are horribly vague and difficult to follow. I'm sure I can slosh my way through but it definitely makes knitting these beautiful items a lot less fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great new "old" looks 9 Mar 2001
By Mark Macpherson - Published on Amazon.com
Really cute "old" classics, including baby bunny slippers, a few socks, a few sweaters, hats and a sleeveless cable sweater I can't wait to make.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Very Vintage 25 Mar 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was really excited that Vogue came out with this. But when I read it, I found that the patterns were pretty dull - even ugly at times, and they really don't look very vintage (unless you consider 1980's vintage). When I think of vintage patterns, I think of little fifties sweaters, boleros, knitted suits, cute hats and items that really shout their era. These are just plain and generic. Can a sock pattern really be vintage?
Get "Vintage Knits" instead - it isn't as portable, but is much more accurate!

2.0 out of 5 stars please show sweaters ON PEOPLE 9 Jun 2005
By Sarah Walter - Published on Amazon.com
Some of these pattterns looked cute, but ultimately I am reluctant make any because there are no pictures of the items actually worn on a person. The portrait-collared 50s sweater, for example: how fitted is it? How cropped? We can't tell from a photo of the sweater flat on a surface. Please, knitting pattern publishers: we need to see the patterns actually modelled!
