The Vintage Pattern Files: Free 1930s Style Knitting Pattern - Sweet Eve Vintage Style Lace Jumper
Sweet Eve Vintage Style Lace Jumper 
Size 8-20 UK

"Embody ladylike elegance in Helen Ardley's lacey fingerless mittens. The lace stitches are easily worked and the pattern uses a cotton yarn which holds stitch definition beautifully. You can knit these quite quickly and they'll add a delicate touch to any outfit. With its ribbed borders, three-quarter length sleeves and diamond pattern throughout, this is a timeless sweater that will look effortless whatever it's worn with. The silk and alpaca blend yarn give this project a real luxurious feel, and it's a good choice for those knitters who have already made their first few garments and want a bit of a challenge!"

1930s Knitting - Lace Collar

Vintage Style Lace Collar

"Sometimes you'll find a top in your wardrobe that is lacking a certain 'je ne sais quoi'. A spot of simple embellishment can transform a plain garment into something fresh and exciting. Save your top from being forever unworn and add Julie Ferguson's Grace around the collar; a complimentary lace trim finished off with a vintage brooch."

Vintage Style Picnic Blanket

"This gorgeous knitted picnic blanket by Sian Brown uses intarsia colourwork to create a timeless tartan effect! The blanket uses Rowan Summer Tweed and Rowan All Seasons Cotton to create a rustic effect in beautiful outdoor colours. Sausage rolls, jam sandwiches, thermal flasks full of tea – there's nothing more idyllic than a picnic by the riverbank! Remember to twist your yarns together mid-row to prevent holes forming."
