Knitting is a Slippery Slope

Welcome to the "wonderful" world of vintage knitting patterns, British vintage knitting patterns, to be precise...





Some years ago, I acquired an unsorted pile of vintage knitting patterns. After a lengthy hibernation period in the cupboard (not me, the patterns), I decided to sift through the collection this weekend. Here is a selection of my favourites so far, sorted chronologically to the best of my knowledge.

My selection is obviously based upon sheer amusement factor (more to come, by the way), but it seems we used to knit a lot more for stuff for the gentlemen...

1960s









1970s









1980s
