Knitting 80’s style – Book Reviews

IMAG0875 I bought these two 80’s Knitting books from a couple of charity shops for a about £1.50 each and just wanted to do a quick post to share the amazing patterns. The books are called ‘The Sweater Book’ by numerous designers and ‘Picture Knits’ by Marilyn Rowlings and Jane Taylor.  Some of the patterns are still wearable today and other’s should definitely stay in the 80’s! I haven’t knitted anything from these books yet, but the patterns look very simple to follow and both books have a good glossary on knitting techniques at the back. Anyway as the old adage goes ‘a picture speaks a thousand words’ so enjoy!
