just won my 1940 french childs knitting pattern on Ebay.. £0.99p cant be bad..


i,ve finished the bonnet  just need to buy the ribbon

Pictures, we need pictures. :)


I just picked up a bunch of vintage knitting patterns on Ebay recently too. I'm working on a 1940s romper. It's almost done--just need to do the collar. I took the pattern intended for fingering weight yarn (it appears that just about all 1940s baby patterns are for fingering weight yarn) and converted it to DK weight. I'm making the romper in Knit Picks Cotlin. It's looking pretty cute, if I do say so myself. I'll get a picture when it's done.


finish  the jacket as well now 

hi the photos are on my page

Those are lovely. That little jacket has a very French look, doesn't it. What type of yarn did you use (cotton, acrylic, etc.)?
