Knitting Patterns from 1939

Neat, huh? I found this pattern book (dated 1939) at Vintage Knits, which offers an incredibly wide range of knitting, crochet, and other needlework patterns as well as great customer service and really reasonable prices. I bought this one based on the cover alone, and I definitely think I’ll eventually make a couple things out of it. Many of the patterns are dresses or suits, but among the suits there are several tops that would make adorable short-sleeved cardigans or blouses on their own. Here’s a scan of one of the more eye-catching outfits in the collection:

I think the cardi is really cute, but I don’t know about the trim–it’s a bit…furry.

And alas–hat pattern not included.

    That hat is awesome–very Dr. Seuss!
