Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One major pitfall of many vintage-style knitting books is that the garments and accessories make wearers look like they're going to a retro costume party. Kelley and Osborn, co-owners of the yarn company Kelbourne Woolens, avoid this by taking aspects of vintage style—classic tailoring, delicate details, and feminine touches—and incorporating them into garments and accessories that look contemporary. The majority of the patterns are best approached by intermediate to advanced knitters, but adventurous beginners will find exciting challenges as well. A classic, accessible collection.
