Charity Shop Pattern Finds

Over the weekend J and I did our usual charity shop rummages and look what I found! These amazing vintage patterns were tucked away in a corner, found after some serious rummaging!

These patterns made the grade:

Spot The Dog, Raymond Briggs Father Christmas, Vintage  Jumper, Vintage Crochet Dress
Spot The Dog, Raymond Briggs Father Christmas, Vintage Jumper, Vintage Crochet Dress

 

J has requested a Father Christmas jumper, and I can’t wait to knit a small person a Spot The Dog jumper!

These, although awesome, didn’t quite make it home!

Celebrity knitting patterns, what a genius idea! Not sure how much input Billy Connolly would have to his knitting pattern though!!

    • I’ve never seen knitting or crochet patterns in charity shops before so I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes out in future! You can pay loads on ebay/etsy for good vintage patterns!

      • Oh really?! What country are you in? Im in Australia, and I find most places do. If they dont its usually the big company charity shops, because they get select ranges of thing in.
        I picked up some amazing vintage sewing patterns for 10c each last year. Haven’t decided what to do with them yet. The size is too big for two of them, but they are so nice!
