Knitting Fashions of the 1940s: Styles, Patterns and History

Author(s): JANE WALLER

creativity

The 1940s was a decade of exciting and prolific knitting activity. Scarcity of wools and dyes produced imaginative but stylish designs. This classic pattern book , now in paperback for 2021, is a treasury of patterns, adapted for today's yarns and needles, that will appeal to all handknitters and to anyone interested in the period. Over fifty patterns are featured , ranging from twinsets to hats with a variety of stitches. Illustrations show the garments as advertised in the 1940s and as re-knitted for today's wear. Introductions to the patterns make this a unique book that will inform, inspire and delight. AUTHOR: Jane Waller has written three books on the social history of the Second World War and five books on knitwear design, all of which have been inspirational for fashion designers and for film and television wardrobe research. Knitwear from her earlier books can be seen in numerous period films and TV series. 155 colour photographs
