Hello and welcome to Vintage Knits. Delving into the past is a great way to find inspiration for adding a novel twist to any outfit or to build on your current look. Our compilation will give you plenty of ideas on how to add a timeless vintage touch to your wardrobe and home. You’ll find a huge range of cardigans, jumpers and tops for a variety of
different occasions and everyday wear and, as you might expect with vintage style, there is a lot of lacework to get to grips with. If you’re nervous about jumping into lace, you can learn to knit a colourful wrap on page 118, and the buttoned wrap (p110) is another pattern perfect for those new to the craft. Try these out and before you know it you’ll be brimming with confidence to add delicate touches to all your knits.
We’ve also provided plenty of accessories to match your new retro wear or just to bring a sprinkle of vintage to any outfit, like the delicate mittens on page 124. And, of course, we couldn’t leave out your home. Welcome in Victorian grace with the detailed cushion (p150) and charming sewing box (p143) or keep your hot drinks warm with a tea cosy (p152). So why not get knitting today and fill your home and wardrobe with class from the past?
