Beautifully illustrated and conveying a mood of nostalgia, Knitting Vintage presents 30 retro-inspired knitting patterns that visibly reflect today's fashion trends. Each of the book's chapters is inspired by a different decade from the past century with projects of various skill levels and complexities, ranging from a 1920s flapper-style tasseled top and cloche hat and a 1950s beaded cardigan to a 1960s handbag and 1980s leg warmers. Each project uses modern yarns but draws on key fashion looks from bygone eras and encourages knitters to use vintage accessories and notions. The author gives historical background on each decade's fashion themes, and mood boards feature illustrations, photos, materials, and colorways that inspired the book's projects.
