Sometimes I knit retro too!

September 28, 2012

Sewing is fun but sometimes knitting vintage patterns is fun too! I knit this sweater from a pattern from A Stitch in Time Vol. 2 which is a book full of vintage knitting patterns from the 30s, 40s and 50s that have been rewritten using modern needle sizes, thread sizes and knitting terms. I paired it with a circle skirt I made using a vintage 50s pattern from a magazine and I embroidered it.

I adore the ribbon bow detail!

Yay knitting! My Ravelry page for this project is here. More details can be found on my blog.

  1. This is GORGEOUS! I’ve always dreamed of knitting a sweater, but have only gotten as far as a scarf. I have a book of vintage knitting patterns but am too intimidated to try them..i don’t understand the patterns.

    Your sweater is so lovely, the color & ribbon detail are wonderful. Congratulations on this one, its great!
