Synopsis

Vintage Knits for Him & Her contains a fabulous collection of garment knitting patterns, styled by top European fashion magazine Marie Claire. The 30 designs are all inspired by classic knitwear design from the 1950s to the 1970s, but are fully updated for today's knitter, using modern yarns in contemporary colourways that will appeal to 21st century tastes and will be fun to knit and even more fun to wear! Each pattern features advice on yarn choice, detailed knitting instructions and easy-to-follow charts and diagrams for intarsia, design detailing and shaping. The 1950s chapter evokes the spirit of Dior's 'New Look' and Mad Men. The highly wearable patterns include a men's rib stitch cardigan and women's off the shoulder ribbed mohair jumper, short sleeve cardigan, wrap top, garter stitch belted cardigan, two instarsia fitted sweaters and a beautifully feminine twinset. The 1960s chapter features designs inspired by Pierre Cardin and Andre Courreges.

The patterns include a men's zip-up cardigan and a smart contrast-trim cardigan and women's monochrome geometric instarsia mini skirt and jumper, striking mini dress, oversized button coat, belted zip-up cardigan, rib stitch belted jumper, ribbed roll neck mini jumper-dress, striped three-quarter sleeve jumper and a geometric instarsia sleeveless mini dress. The 1970s chapter is packed with fun designs, some of which would also be suitable for costume parties. Patterns include a men's fringed cardigan and long intarsia belted cardigan and women's striped poncho, rainbow stripped hooded top with muff-style pocket, bow-front sweater, a roll neck oversize check jumper and more! This stylish collection is sure to delight knitters and make it easy for you to knit up vintage-style garments that will remain firm wardrobe favourites for years to come!
