I’m a big fan of vintage knitting and have a few books and patterns myself in my collection. It’s always hard though to figure out how to knit the pieces for correct sizing in today’s terms. Vintage Baby Knits author, Kristen Rengren is here to help! Check out her in-depth 10 part knitting vintage tutorial series that covers everything you need to know.
The Knitting Vintage Tutorial Series covers everything you need to know about how to knit from vintage patterns and alter them to fit – without losing one bit of vintage style. While it’s geared toward the vintage knitter, the information in these articles will help you alter any pattern – vintage or modern – with clear explanations of all the finessing and all the math involved in knitting pattern alteration.
Next Friday, we’ll be featuring a pattern from Kristen’s book, Vintage Baby Knits! Take a preview inside the book and see how vintage can be très chic for the wee ones!
