How is it possible to top such delights, I hear you ask? Well I’m pleased to say it is possible with these amazing vintage patterns I managed to dig out!
The styling alone on these patterns makes me gloriously happy (especially the dapper gent in Patons Capstan!!), and I think its an interesting insight into the cycle of fashion trends! I’ve seen some jumpers recently which are very similar to the Robin jumper, and I have already added this to my ‘in the pipeline‘ page (although I think I will opt for a DK instead of a 4ply, and will probably make it slightly oversized with a larger neck)!
I love each of these patterns, and can see me making mittens, an Aran cardi and the mohair jacket (although maybe not in mohair as it drives me crazy!) in the very near future!
I hope you like them too! I’d love to see your vintage pattern finds, it’s really exciting to know what’s out there!
Have a great break, I hope the Easter bunny leaves plenty of chocolate treats!
Whilst my hand is still in a cast (see twitter pic) and my knitting speed has been seriously thwarted, I’ve found myself lusting after all those patterns that are just out of my grasp (literally!!). One such pattern which caught my eye is this gorgeous tartan scarf from Wool and The Gang. Knit in their luxurious 100% Peruvian yarn, Crazy Sexy Wool, the Tartan Lula Hoop (fabulous name!) can be bought from their website ready made, or as a pattern. Once the cast if off I will DEFINITELY be giving this tartan wonder a go!
