Here I am selling a truly stunning, original Vogue Knitting Book from 1950, containing over 50 original designer patterns. There are many patterns for women's sweaters, coats and cardigans, as well as children's patterns, dresses, suits, bathing suits, slippers, accessories, and men's sweaters and socks. This book also contains a few decorative patterns for bedspreads and place mats, etc. I am amazed at the variety of beautiful knit items in here, and I hope that someone who is more skilled a knitter than I am will make good use of this book.
Most of the patterns are for a size 14 (32 inch bust) with changes indicated for a 16 (34 inch bust), 18 (36 inch bust) and sometimes a 20 (38 inch bust).
This book belonged to my grandfather's aunt, whose name was Maggie. She was a very enthusiastic knitter, and in fact knit many pairs of socks for soldiers in WW 2. I still have the steel needles she used for this purpose.
The book is a little bit tattered, as is to be expected after 65 years. The front cover is getting to be a bit loose. But overall the book is still in good shape and holding together well.
I will ship all patterns as soon as I can after receiving payment - usually within 48 hours. I ship worldwide using Canada Post.
Depending on the weight of the pattern, I will either ship them as an oversized letter, or as Small Packet, airmail. Both of these methods of shipping can take two weeks for delivery to the US, or longer for other countries. If you need your pattern sooner than that, contact me before ordering and I can arrange for a different method of shipment. I will then adjust the shipping charges accordingly.
Please note that all customers outside Canada are responsible for all fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping to their respective countries.
I accept payments through Paypal and Etsy (including Etsy gift cards). I also accept personal checks and money orders. Please note that when personal checks are used, the order will not ship until the check is cleared.
I will cancel the sale and relist any items if payment has not gone through after 3 days. Thank you for understanding.
