Description

Inspired by traditional knits, up-and-coming designers Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley put their own contemporary spin on knitting in Vintage Modern Knits.

Vintage Modern Knits features several different traditional techniques-cables, Fair Isle, lace, colorwork, and more- all showcased in modern, luxurious projects that are fun to knit and even more fun to wear. Divided into three sections (Vintage Feminine, Rustic Weekend, and Winter Harbor), Vintage Modern showcases tailored lines, close fit, and easy-to wear style. These classic, yet contemporary projects are sure to enhance any knitter's wardrobe and be stylish for years to come.

Projects range from quick mittens, hats, shawls, and scarves to cozy cardigans and pullovers in a variety of knitting techniques. From classic designs with fashion-forward color schemes to funky cable sweaters for weekend living, each pattern takes its inspiration from classic silhouettes and adds updated twists for unique must-have pieces.

Notes
Wonderful collection of vintage knits, updated for modern sizing and technique: bohus, fair isle, aran etc.

I would love to hear from you!
