A vintage collection of designs and patterns for 1940s women's knitwear--from simple hats to twin sets to beaded sweaters. This lavish guide celebrates a decade of imaginative and stylish knitting activity. Knitting Fashions of the 1940s features more than 50 patterns that have been adapted for today's yarns and needles, from snoods to sweater sets. Patterns are presented chronologically and progress from the very simple to the more intricate, including lacey and beaded designs. Throughout, 150 color photos show the garments as advertised in the 1940s and as re-knitted for today's wear. Informative introductions to the patterns make this a book that will delight all hand knitters and fans of vintage style.
