Vintage Knitting Pattern

Leaf cardiganThis is from a 1965 pattern book published by the Bernhard Ulmann Co. I knitted this sweater for myself, and was very pleased with the results. The leaf pattern is surprisingly easy to memorize, and I like the fit of the sweater. Reworkings of older patterns rarely duplicate the vintage tailoring.

  8. Boohoo…im looking for MeCall Needlework pattern magazines from 1956 to 1977-78…someone came in my home and sold knitting bag and all of my vintage books…is there anyone out there who can tell how i can replace some of these books…signed devastated

  9. Oh, no, LiLew! What a bummer. I got all my books one or two at a time at thrift stores and garage sales, but I’m sure you can find replacements for some of them online. There’s some McCall’s on amazon.
