Complete with 18 genuine patterns from 1941, this vintage knitting handbook will allow you to recreate the authentic homemade styles of the 'Golden Age' of knitting! 70 facsimile pages from the classic Knitting for All have been included, and a new introduction looks at the influence of the Second World War and rationing on the incredible popularity of knitting in the era of 'make do and mend'.
