Caveat – these series of posts are aimed at the new knitter who wants to knit vintage styles. Its a collection of short cuts and tips that i’ve found useful, and i’d love to hear about your tips too!
I’ve always loved vintage knitting patterns, and used to think that the people who could knit from them must have amazing knitting skillz. That level of knitting would never be attainable for little old me!
Thinking about miles of fingering weight yarn, potentially having to resize a pattern and unfamiliar instructions made me feel too nervous to try.
Let me tell you now – knitting vintage is no different to knitting a modern day pattern! (Don’t get me started on how badly written Vogue knitting patterns are, for example).
I’d love to address those concerns, and give you some thoughts of my own for those who would love to try their hand at their first vintage knit.
Hopefully my short cuts and tips will help convince you, as I honestly don’t think it’s a hard process.
