1940s Patterns to Knit

1940s Patterns to Knit
The 1940s in Britain was a high point for hand knitting. Women on the home front could make a contribution to the war effort by knitting for the troops using patterns that were often given away free. Many specialised patterns developed such as the balaclava helmet with ear flaps for use in telephone operations or the mittens with a separate forefinger for firing a trigger in the cold.

Twist Collective By Karla Stuebing What happens when knitting inspiration meets scientific method? A rare thing of pure beauty. Inspired by a pattern she found in an online knitting magazine, Karla Stuebing paired the mathematical expertise she uses as a statistical methodologist and research professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Houston with her passion for yarn and needles. The result—a technique that's been dubbed planned pooling—is awe-inspiring. My fascination with pooling began in 2009 with a pattern called Sweet Spot, designed by Wannietta Prescod. What I realized was that there was underlying structure in the dye patterns of the yarns that wasn't immediately apparent when the yarn was skeined to feature the mixture of colors, rather than the pattern. The following examples show the pattern you would expect to see for the red, green, blue colorway above, knitted out at two different stitch counts.

Tricoté Sud : Fils, modèles et kits Tricot et Crochet Sacs tricot en feutre Herbstlied - Swatching the Acorn Sweater This is Herbstlied (translated from German means Autumn Song), the cover sweater from New Style of Heirloom Knitting, the wonderful Japanese knitting pattern book with only a few non-essential words written in English. It's going to be my summer knitting challenge. For the past several evenings, I've been working on a swatch. It's been slow going. The swatch yarn is Louet Topaz worsted weight Merino yarn knit with a #4 Knitpicks Options needle. The unwashed, unblocked swatch measures 10.25 inches from the stem (the center of the sweater) to the side seam. If you are thinking of knitting this sweater and want the fun of figuring out the eight stitches of the oak leaf lobe yourself, stop reading now. Even knowing how it's done, I can't look at the stitch chart and see how it indicates a cable. Instead I studied the stitches in the picture at the top of page 69 and figured out one way to do it. This isn't going to make any sense unless you have the book, page 69. The Eight Stitches of A

Balls to the Walls Knits: Build-Your-Own DK Weight Hat I designed this pattern with one goal in mind; namely, that it could be the first in-the-round project for a beginning knitter who had learned how to knit and purl but not much else. Or in other words, it's supposed to be a tutorial. Of course, you don't have to be a beginning knitter to enjoy it - with a basic design like this, there's all sorts of customization you can add. Throw in stripes or a stitch pattern with a 2-, 4-, or 8-stitch repeat, and you can turn this basic little hat into another beast entirely! Or, add a few inches and omit the knit rows in the decrease and you'll have a gathered crown. And add a few extra inches to THAT and it's slouchy as well!!!! Oh, and another thing, guys - this is my first tutorial style pattern.
