21 lovely unusual designs to knit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vintage Knitwear for Modern Knitters (Hardcover)
Having flicked through this book, I'm delighted with my purchase, which was partly based on other reviews. It gives instructions and pictures (for USA and UK) for 21 lovely smart designs from the 30s, 40s and 50s, updated for modern sizes (from size 32"/81cm - 42"/107cm bust) and modern yarns. Vintage pictures of each garment are shown, together with a picture of the finished articles when knitted up, which look surprisingly modern.
The book has a glossary of techniques and abbreviations at the back, and the garments are each rated as either easy, for knitters with some experience, or for experienced knitters. Both USA and UK suppliers are also listed.
This is a lovely book and if another one is brought out I will certainly be buying it.
