Or, dust on the sewing machine means my needles are flying!
It’s February!! That means, for all you fellow Aussie ladies (and gents?), there are about three or four months left to go before you can seriously break out the hot winter styles. Seriously, readers, I am dreaming of the day when I can pull on a jumper and a tartan wool skirt. In my eagerness, I have been scouring Ravelry for cute vintage-inspired patterns to knit, because if I start now I might actually have something finished when it starts getting chilly!
For your knitterly delectation, I have gathered here some of my favourite patterns. I tried to pick something to cover most parts of you! Best of all, they’re all free! Just click on the pictures to get to the patterns. Start knitting! Now! What are you waiting for?!
Joan Crawford Cardigan
From a 1930’s knitting pattern booklet.
Lady Jodie Hat
Gorgeous little flapper-style hat!
I have made several of these and they are insanely cute & warm!
Women’s Long Gloves
You better believe I will be knitting some long gloves this winter. They are so fantastic.
Bell Curve Skirt
Hot. Hot. Hot. 1940’s suit, anyone?
1930 Tap Bra and Panties
I have loved these forever, still have to get around to making some!
Is there something here that tickles your fancy? Maybe start with the gorgeous underwear! I might go with the cute cloche hat, it’s just too adorable for words. Happy knitting (or dreaming of knitting)! xox
