Knitting is one of the most calming crafts a person can pick up, and as you can tell by the vintage knitting patterns below, the process is also totally timeless.
I love how all of the patterns tell you so much about the style and fashion of the erain which they were produced. From the more subdued 1930s to the vibrant colors of the 1970s, it’s really quite fascinating to see how things have changed over the years.
Sure, some of the vintage knitting patterns listed below can take a lot of patience to finish, but it’s also always worth the effort when you curl up in a cozy sweater or see the smile on a loved one’s face when you hand them a cute gift.
