Looking to make a new baby or christening gift? Want to make something truly precious?
I have several shawl and blanket patterns in my shop- all reproductions from my personal collection. My own son was given a hand knitted blanket by his Aunt and it is destined to be a family heirloom. Hand knitted gifts are some of the best, longest lasting and most treasured.

This baby blanket was originally designed to measure 54" square.
Tension 7 stitches and 11 rows per inch.

Other baby blanket patterns can be found in the section of my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/VanessaLovesVintage?section_id=11944884

This lacy design might also appeal:

The original design was among a number sold by a large Australian woollen mill in the 30's, 40's and 50s. The pattern, published originally in Australia is now in the public domain. It is a condition of sale that the pattern not be duplicated and/or resold.

Additional policies

Thank you for your interest in my shop. I enjoy being apart of the etsy community and appreciate your business.

Please choose carefully as I do not refund pattern purchases due to change of mind. This has been my policy since I opened my shop in 2011.

The pattern reproductions in my shop are chosen from some of my favourites in my collection and I am so happy to be able to share them with you. I recently had enquiry about 'who' wrote the original patterns. In most cases the patterns I sell were originally reproduced by Australian woollen mills, the vast majority of which no longer exist. In almost all cases, the mills never attributed designs to one particular individual. Dating research on provenance. where pattern books were not dated, ensures that patterns in my shop are almost exclusively dated before 1 January 1955 which is when amendments were retrospectively applied to Australian
copyright law in line with international free trade agreements.

Patterns sold at VanessaLovesVintage cannot be on sold or redistributed as a condition of sale. I am thrilled to hear that some customers enjoy making these designs for markets and school bazaars- if we are talking small quantities I have no issue at all.

Finally, I always love to see completed garments. Send me photos! It is wonderful to keep the art of knitting alive.
