This copy of Bernat’s Handknit Classics from 1945 is full of superb classic knitwear designs, sized to fit the whole family, from children through men. Designs are from Alice Carroll, a noted knitwear designer of the mid-century period.
The sweater patterns show a variety of pleasing cables, stitches, and necklines, and there are sock patterns with various heels, as well as classic argyles. Plus scarves, gloves, and some baby items - even matching mother-and-baby booties! Lovely 1940s style.
