Vintage Knit: 25 Knitting and Crochet Patterns Updated for Today

Vintage knit cover

Here's a book perfect for retro style lovers who are handy with a pair of knitting needles or a crochet hook, Vintage Knit: 25 Knitting and Crochet Patterns Updated for Today by Marine Malak with Geraldine Warner.

Although the book's title is slightly unwieldy, it explains the appeal of this just-released book exactly. It takes 25 knitwear patterns, dating from the 1930s, 40s and 50s, and updates them for the contemporary crafter. That means easing some of the terminology, regrading them to fit modern sizes and suggesting suitable yarns for making up these patterns today. 

As you can see from the sample pages shown below, the book pairs the original vintage photography with up-to-date imagery. And to really make these patterns worthy of the 21st century, the book also includes a list of online resources to help you with your knit. 

It's priced at £17.95, with Amazon currently offering it for £14.96.
