Knitting Fashions of the 1940s - Style, Patterns and History
|INSIDE:||155 colour photographs|
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 fifty 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.
'This wonderful book provides a window on the social history of the war years through a collection of vintage patterns that have been revised and re-knitted for the twenty-first century. A must-have book.' Knit Today
