This review is from: Knit Vintage: More than 20 patterns for starlet sweaters & other knitwear from the 1930s, 1940s & 1950s (Hardcover)
I, too, was very taken by this lovely-looking book and thought the garments were beautiful. i bought the yarn, but, before I even started the first pattern (Jayne, p.17) I realised the number of inches/cms given for the ribbed welt was completely wrong...far too few. I added several, knitted them, then looked at the instructions for the 8-row pattern...didn't make sense, numbers didn't add up at all. Had to give up. I telephoned the publisher. The outcome of this was that I was emailed the right pattern (watch this space). Very helpful people there, but they only gave me corrections for the above pattern and the Greta wristwarmers/gloves. I would be interested to know if any other purchasers have found other patterns to be wrong.
I have been knitting for years and this the first time I have ever come across mistakes like these....even free patterns in magazines are right.

myself, like the others found this book good to look at , but the measurements are all to pot! I contacted the publisher of the book to explain, but after 3 weeks waiting I have had no reply whatsoever, another company with no customer back up !!
