Vintage Baby Knits

More than 40 Heirloom Patterns from the 1920s to the 1950s.
While working as a vintage clothing dealer, combing through estate sales and eBay listings, longtime knitter Kristen Rengren amassed hundreds of knitting pattern booklets from 1920 through 1960. Now a knitwear designer, Rengren brings us the result of her combined passions in Vintage Baby Knits,a charming collection of more than 40 contemporary updates of timeless baby patterns. Projects range from small, quick-to-knit items like hats, booties, and shrugs to larger, more challenging designs for sweaters and dresses, including a lace christening gown. Beautiful photographs capture a bevy of adorable babies and toddlers wearing these knitted treasures. Also included are sidebars on baby fashion and knitting culture in this bygone era, and a complete reference section. Destined to be a classic itself, Vintage Baby Knitspromises family heirlooms for 21st-century babies.   hardcover, 160 pages

My Favorite Baby Patterns Book

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Vintage Baby Knits:

This book is a real gem. The patterns are exceptionally well written, interesting and adorable. I knitted the Jasper Diamond Hoodie and it came out beautifully. The diamond pattern matched up perfectly on the shoulders and sleeve seams. I also knitted the bunny blanket which is very easy but looks complicated. I plan to knit many more items from this wonderful book.
