Vintage 1939 Minerva Knitting Book, Stitched & Styles How to Book Volume #5, Knit Sweaters, 24 Projects, Fabulous 1930s Styles and Designs ~
Minerva knitting books have been around for decades starting in the early 1900's and this one is fabulous for showing the fashions that were being made and worn in the late 1930's. The models are vintage 30's perfection! So composed and elegant, with most looking away from the camera as was the style back then.
You'll find 18 different ladies sweaters to knit along with a few skirts too. I love how they made sure to have one sweater for a man and two ideas for a little girl, along with a 'luncheon cloth' and bedspread in the back of the book.
This is a great instructional book on making handknits with pattern diagrams, the correct needles to use and what type of Minerva yarn best suits each design. There are 48 pages to this paper book and it measures 11" by 8.5" in size. It is in great vintage condition with no markings inside, however there is one stamp on the front cover on the right side.

I look for Cool Finds where ever I go and I never know what I’ll run across. I find sewing boxes and so much more and realize that, being vintage, they most likely have been used and will have some wear and tear.
Buttons may have come off of a dress or coat, or they might have never been used at all, like those on the original cards. Books may have been handled and gone through over and over.
I check all patterns to ensure that all pieces are accounted for as well as the directions. If they are used, cut or missing, I have noted that in my description above.
Please look at the details in the photos above as they are a part of my description and are intended to help you determine age and condition. All items are sold as is. If you have any questions, please let me know as I would be more than happy to answer them.
