Knit Vintage

Starlet Sweaters & Other Knitwear from the 1930s, 1940s & 1950s
Madeleine Weston & Rita Taylor

Description

The book offers a selection of more than 20 timeless designs based on original women's knitwear patterns from the 1930s to the 1950s. Drawing from their own extensive collections of vintage knitting patterns, the authors have chosen garments for their classic style and updated them to appeal to 21st century tastes. The patterns, which incorporate traditional stitch formations such as cables, lace, Fair Isle and other motifs, have been adapted to suit an array of gorgeous modern yarns in fashion-forward colours and sumptuous textures, including merino, angora, cotton, bamboo, cashmere, alpaca and silk. The five chapters (Pretty Tops, Cute Cardigans, Starlet Sweaters, Twinsets & Two Pieces and Finishing Touches) include short-sleeve tops, cardigans, sweaters, twinsets, stockings, a beret, shawl and mittens. All feature classic touches that will appeal to anyone who loves the exquisite attention to detail found in vintage knitwear.
