Description

"Vintage Baby Knits" features modern updates of charming, timeless vintage baby patterns from the 1920s through to the 1950s. Projects range from small, quick-to-knit items like hats, socks, booties, soakers (cloth nappy covers) and shrugs to larger and more challenging designs for sweaters, onesies, dresses and blankets. Enhancing the projects are entertaining sidebars on baby fashion and the knitting culture during each of the four decades from which the projects were drawn. A complete reference section provides sizing charts, needle conversion charts (from the old to new measuring systems), instructions for caring for hand knits so they will last for generations and sources for vintage patterns and guidelines for understanding and working from them.show more
