‘Knit Vintage’ is for you if you are a vintage knit junkie who loves the styling, finishing and attention to detail of vintage patterns but finds it hard working from the originals. A lot of work has gone into this book in retaining original vintage details such as button fastenings on the backs of tops and offering useful information such as joining tips for puffed sleeves.


This book reminds us to slow down 60 | ukhandmade | Autumn 2012


and enjoy the process of creating your knitted item rather than rushing to finish it as quickly as possible. Savour the working of the individual pieces and creation of the vintage details the same way you would if you were sewing a dress using couture techniques. Take time to appreciate the new skills that you’re learning – and repeat that as a mantra if you have to rip back your work a few times before getting it right! I always say that knitting teaches you how to be Zen.


You may not be able to knit a jumper from a pattern in this book while working your way through a box set of your favourite TV series, but curling up on the sofa on a winter’s evening and giving yourself the space and time to work on your project is a lovely way to unwind and enjoy the season.
