vintage knitting without the headache
on 18 February 2009
Just received my copy and am very pleased with it. Some beautiful patterns such as boleros, jackets, jumpers and scarfs, all bar one are graded as intermediate to advanced so not much for the beginner knitter. If like me you adore patterns from the 40's and 50's then this is the book for you. As all of the patterns have been resized they go up to a 42" chest (unlike the originals which usually only go up to about a 32"!. The choice of yarns is quite good for example Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, Capricorn mohair, Orkney angora, Jaeger machmaker merino but easy enough to substitute if you do a tension square.
