Synopsis

Discover knitting techniques that allow you to adapt vintage patterns into the perfect fit for modern-day style!

Vintage Design 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.
