World War I:
Knitting was a huge part of war-time history, whether it was women knitting for the troops or knitting to occupy time while they waited for their soldiers to return home. Here are two patterns that partake in both these. Knit up a hot-water bottle cover that troops would have used or create the V is the Victory vest.
