These knitwear designs draw their inspiration from the 40s, 50s, and 60s, when fashion emanated charm, simplicity, and elegance. Rejuvenated by the postwar years, men and women embraced styles that captured feminine appeal and masculine exuberance, glorying in the recovered pleasures of fine cloth, rich texture, and relaxed fit. Inspired by old photos, archival patterns, and films like Breakfast at Tiffany's, the classic designs in Vintage Knits have been adapted for modern figures and ease of wear. Leading names in knitting—Kim Hargreaves, Kaffe Fassett, and Lucinda Guy, to name a few—bring new life to vintage, with stunning designs for belted jackets, roll-neck sweaters, delicate cardigans, and simple wraps. Photographed in the beautiful French countryside, the featured designs are complemented with vintage pieces and accessories, making this not just a knitting book, but a captivating fashion pictorial.About the Author:
