Free Vintage Knitting Pattern Booklet – Twin-Prufe Series 144 (c. 1950s)

And here’s Anna’s final patternbook from her mother’s collection – Twin-Prufe Series 144.
I’ve previously shared a pattern from this booklet (Spring Magic, wow back in 2010), and can attest to it’s fabulousness. I believe it comes from the early 1950s.

The booklet is filled with airy knits, perfect for Spring and lace lovers.

All of the styles are to fit a 32-34 inch bust, with instructions for a 36 inch.

I hope you enjoy these patterns (and Anna’s hard work), and the complete booklet is available as a PDF here at this link.
(please note I have put a light watermark on them, only to stop people re-selling Anna’s copies)

    It's so fascinating to see my favourite Sun-glo under a different name… again! I picked up a Woolworths' Economy knitting book a while back and was delighted to discover that the patterns were designed by Sun-glo. Now it seems I need to keep a look out for Twin Prufe, too.

    They are absolutely glorious patterns and I want to knit almost everything in this book.

    Thanks for scanning and sharing this with us!
