Discover knitting techniques that allow you to adapt vintage patterns
into the perfect fit for modern-day style!
Workshop is the guide that retro-loving knitters have been waiting for-a
welcome relief for those who have been frustrated by vintage patterns that come
in one size only.
Divided into two sections, this essential book first
teaches you how to update any vintage pattern to accommodate modern sizes and
gives advice on choosing substitutes for yarns that are out of production. The
second section demonstrates how to adapt modern patterns to create a vintage
silhouette, teaching how to mix and match sleeves, necklines, or collars to the
pattern of your choice to achieve a vintage look.
The author uses one
vintage pattern throughout as the basis for separate tutorials on yarn
substitution, sizing and gauge, deciding on alterations, adjusting shaping and
length, and adding or altering details. Vintage Design Workshop is a key
resource for any knitter who is keen on learning how very simple it is to update
or customize patterns yourself.
