Knitting Fashions of the 1940s

Styles, Patterns and History
Jane Waller

Description

The 1940s was a decade of exciting and prolific knitting activity. Scarcity of wools and dyes produced imaginative but stylish designs. This classic pattern book, now in paperback for 2021, is a treasury of patterns, adapted for today's yarns and needles, that will appeal to all handknitters and to anyone interested in the period.

Over 50 patterns are featured, ranging from twinsets to hats with a variety of stitches. Illustrations show the garments as advertised in the 1940s and as re-knitted for today's wear. Introductions to the patterns make this a unique book that will inform, inspire and delight.
