This one of a kind book by knitwear designer and history buff Rohn Strong combines essays, period photography, history, and 20 gorgeous patterns based on vintage knits. The Heritage Collection WWI & WWII explores the history and the mysticism behind knitting during those two horrible wars and the patterns that kept our soldiers and citizens warm. It is also an ode to Strong's family and the part they played in the war effort. The 20 vintage patterns include garments, accessories, socks and housewares for men, women and children. Each design has been updated for modern knitters but retains the essence of this historical period. Yarns used include: Classic Elite's Inca Alpaca and Classic Silk; MadelineTosh Vintage; Berroco Ultra Alpaca; and Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted. Downloadable PDF; 118 pages.
