I love 80s knitting books and look out for them every time I go to a charity shop, car boot or secondhand book shop, not only are they hilarious (hopefully not just to me?) but they’re actually always filled with good basic patterns. This one comes from Copperfield secondhand book shop in Wimbledon which is just a treasure trove and if you’ve ever in the area you have to pop in to have a look around. This book is simply called ‘Knitting’ there’s no author credits but it’s published by treasure press.
The stitch guides in these 80s knitting books are brilliant, they’re so easy to follow.
These whole outfits are great I really want to knit one of these jumpers and make a comfy wool skirt ready for autumn.
I love they’re matching hair! Not sure about the flocked jumpers though!To cute! I really want to make these!
Aww, beautiful babies! Somehow I don’t think this girl wanted to be a knitwear model?! The girls would love a set of these! A lot of work, but I quite like its Art Deco feel.I don’t think the lamb wanted to be in the book either!
