A fun and inspiring practical book that is guaranteed to inspire knitters and would-be knitters to take up their needles in pursuit of the authentic elegance of a bygone era. Vintage crafts are suddenly all the rage, none more so than knitting. Vintage knitting patterns from the 1930s, 40s and 50s invoke the timeless chic of that more innocent age, and have become highly collectible in the last few years. But often original patterns don't produce successful results: they can be highly complicated; they use yarns that are no longer available, and the sizes are too small for our larger modern physiques. That's where this book comes in. Lise-Lotte Lystrup presents 21 genuine period designs that have been cleverly updated for the modern knitter. The patterns have been subtly simplified; they use easily sourced modern yarns; and instructions are provided for six different sizes. The result is a delightful book that celebrates vintage style for today.
