Knit Back in Time

Techniques for Updating Vintage Patterns & Retro-Styling Modern Patterns
Geraldine Warner

Description

Geraldine Warner shows you how simple it is to change lengths, take out waists, shorten sleeves and substitute for yarns that are no longer in production. She reveals two crucial secrets for knitting vintage-style projects: how to update a vintage pattern to suit modern sizes and yarns, and how to customise modern patterns to give them a vintage look.

She also provides patterns for vintage-style elements, offering invaluable advice on mixing and matching sleeves, necklines and collars to create your own designs. You can choose to add a bell-shaped, three-quarter or ruffled sleeve to the same sweater body, depending on the look you want, or just give in and knit three different jumpers, all from the same basic pattern.
