Welcome to the second edition of The Unofficial Downton Abbey Knits! As in the first, a group of outstanding knitwear designers have used the magnificent PBS series Downton Abbey as the inspiration for twenty-five projects imbued with the spirit of the show and its setting yet perfect for life in the twenty-first century.
The articles that open this issue set the scene for both the show itself and the period in which it is set. Kristine Byrnes offers a behind-the-scenes look at Costumes of Downton Abbey, a special exhibition at Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library (located near Wilmington, Delaware). In “Clothes Make the Man: Fashion for Men in the 1920s,” Kathy Augustine discusses the “quiet metamorphosis” of men’s clothing in the early decades of the twentieth century. Join Christina Garton as she discusses a group of intrepid women as she follows the fight for women’s right to vote in “Speaking Up in Public While Female: Suffragettes in Britain.”
You'll love these stunning projects, perfect for men, women, and every day life in this special issue of The Unofficial Downton Abbey Knits!
