A vintage Knitted Suit blouse

I know this isn’t sewing, but I assume some people who like to sew vintage might want to knit vintage, too. I have a free vintage knitting pattern from the August 1951 issue of Workbasket magazine available on my blog.

  • Oh, this is adorable! I love old knitting magazines, too. I need to knit more.

    This pattern actually tells you what kind of yarn you need, but a lot of them don’t so, if it’s helpful, here is the Standard Yarn Weight System’s guide to yarn and stitch gauge.

  • I wish I knew how to knit, so I could make this sweater, but I figured sharing it would be almost as good. I am currently trying to crochet a sweater, so we’ll see where that goes, and then maybe try knitting, lol.

  • KnittingHelp.com is what I used to teach myself how to knit almost 5 years ago- it’s very helpful, and the forums are a great place to go if you have problems and need advice. The videos alone are stellar- go learn to knit! You won’t regret it. In fact, I taught my girl to knit and she is now making scarves for her cosplaying friends (and it’s teaching her to appreciate the work that goes into handmade items instead of something just picked up from a store- score for Mom!).
