43 patterns inspired by the '40s, '50s, '60s, and '70s

Knitters love all things vintage-but it's not as easy as picking up an old pattern from decades past. Oftentimes, they use obsolete yarns, aren't sized for today's body shapes, and are written differently than current pattern instructions.

Now, retro-minded crafters get the best of both worlds in this unique collection. Drawing from the fashion trends of the '40s through the '70s, Knitting it Old School offers a bold new twist on vintage-inspired knitting patterns.

  • Vintage patterns feature newly created designs that flatter today's figure and use contemporary yarns
  • Fun, wearable patterns that echo styles of days gone by
  • Four bonus sewing patterns to whip up complimentary vintage-themed accessories

With a balance of classic and kitsch, wardrobe basics and saucy specials, Knitting it Old School is a breath of fresh air for knitters who love "old" but want to be "new."
