2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By S. Ecroyd on August 2, 2007
Format: Paperback
Vintage knitting patterns offer an intrigueing challenge to knitters who adore well designed, body concious,elegant fashions and an emphasis on technique. That said, adapting the original patterns to modern materials, measurements and sensibilities can be overwhelming even to the experienced knitter. S.Dallas has done a fantastic job with this compilation of reworked designs from the 30's-50's. I have made two of the sweaters in this volume and found instructions and specifications to be clear, easy to follow and to produce well fitted garment for my admittedly larger body. Highly recommended for the intermediate and experienced knitter who cherishes design and technique. Some designs also look appropriate for advanced beginners wanting a little challenge
