The Ohio Knitting Mills Knitting Book by Steven Tatar with Denise Grollmus is available now! Tatar is the President and Creative Director of Ohio Knitting Mills, a company that offers unique virgin vintage knitwear from 1947-74 made at the historic Cleveland Ohio mill. (You can read more and see my photos from an Ohio Knitting Mills Trunk Show a few years ago.) Now with this new book, these vintage patterns can be knit by you! The book is filled with vintage-style fashions and accessories for women, with a few handsome men’s patterns thrown in there too. I love The Outsider sweater and the Go-Go girl sweater dress below. Even as the patterns are vintage-inspired, flipping through the book you’ll find that the patterns are really modern and in line with a lot of current trends for fall. The book also features archival illustrations of sweater sketches as well as amazing photos showcasing the history of this unique American mill.
