This is a lovely coffee table book that recounts the history of VOGUE KNITTING magazine, commencing with its Fall/Winter 1982 re-launch. The VK editors have selected one or more popular patterns from most issues, and accompany the model photograph of each pattern with a few paragraphs that explain the editors' thinking at the time.

For example, alongside Joan Vass' "Tape Tee" design [p.94]: "Sheen and sheer were the watchwords for Spring/Summer '98, as VK took the show back on the road to Miami Beach's Eden Roc Resort, where much of this breezy issue was photographed. . . . The 'sheen' came from . . . ribbon yarns. . . . The 'sheer' came from a collection of peekaboo lace . . . ." There are 18 patterns from the 1980s, 19 patterns from the 1990s, and 38 patterns from the 2000s. Complete pattern instructions are included, reprinted as they originally appeared in VK (without updating for modern sizing, or any specific suggestions for currently available yarns; although the schematics, yarn weights, and gauge information make it easy for today's knitters to use the patterns.)

Paging through the selections, knitters are reminded of the role that VK has always played in promoting hand knits as fashion. In the 1980s, VK published designs by Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, and Norah Gaughan; in the 1990s, designs by Donna Karan, Adrienne Vittadini, and Missoni; in the 2000s, designs by Oscar de la Renta, Debbie Bliss, Michael Kors, and Kaffe Fassett. These are only a few of the famous designers represented in this book. Name-designer patterns are easily located by using the excellent Index.

Format: Hardcover
Most of the patterns are within the last couple of years. You'd do better just going through your old magazines. Most can't be made as the tensions don't match any modern yarns as well. Who is going to waste a ton of time trying to find a yarn to match these? Also the 80's are long past and the oversized sweaters aren't even usable any more.... so basically a nice table book with little value to a real knitter.

Doesn't have the best designs in the VK archives! HIstory is good. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone who loves Vogue Knitting.

What a fabulous collection, styles that last across the decades, with only minor changes necessary to make totally up to date. Love the book, inspiration.
