Glorifying the recovered pleasures of fine cloth, rich texture, and a relaxed fit, this collection of vintage patterns draws its inspiration from the charm, simplicity, and elegance of mid-20th-century clothing. Rejuvenated by the postwar years, men and women embraced styles that captured feminine appeal and masculine exuberance, with well-tailored designs and graceful finishing touches that are re-created here. The 31 patterns in this volumefrom cardigans and jackets to scarves and pullovershave been inspired by old photographs, archival patterns, and classic Hollywood films and have been adapted for modern figures and contemporary knitters.
