Item details

Half the original price!

Vintage 20 page Sun-Glo knitting book number 43 of garments for babies, circa early 1940s. Undated but clearly from World War II era as there is a blurb on page 2 about most of their wool being requisitioned for the Defence Department.

Contains patterns for various garments including coats, bonnets, bootees, leggings, beret, mittens, sweater, cardigan, pilchers and dresses. Also includes patterns for a shawl and cot cover.

CONDITION: I actually have TWO editions of this book that I will include in the one sale.
* Booklet 1 is missing pages 9 - 12 and has some losses to bottom corner plus other small tears to page edges.
* Booklet 2 is complete but in poorer condition with significant folds and creases, plus tears to all pages along some fold lines and some sellotape repairs. Despite condition all instructions are legible.
