Title   KNITTING FASHIONS OF THE 1940s: STYLES, PATTERNS AND HISTORY.

Seller ID   22743

160 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1861268629 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, reproductions, drawings, patterns. "In the first half of the 1940s, the wartime scarcity of wools and dyes produced inno vative, figure-hugging lacy designs and creative stitch techniques of bobbles, cables and ribs. In the post-war period, there was an even more acute shortage of materials, which meant that imaginative Fair Isle designs and embroidery techni q u e s b e c ame the only solution. As the 1950s approached, however, a greater availability of materials led to the voluptuous batwing look and looser garments. This lavish book celebrates the patterns and designs of 1940s knitwear. Drawings a nd p ho to g ra ph s from the original pattern magazines accompany modern colour phtographs of the garments knitted up for today's wear. In addition, it provides a history of wartime Britain and America, often using the actual words of the knitter s a nd des ign er s u sed b y the fashion magazines. Patterns appear chronologically, reflecting what was happening at the time, and progress from the very simple (snood, balaclava or WAAF doll) to the more intricate blackberry stitch and lacy des igns as the kni tte r be come s m ore fluent with the needles. Many of the designs are unusual and there are sequins, beads knitted into the fabric, and knitted buttons. American, British and continental needle sizes are included, as is America n ter mino logy; and meas ureme nts a re g iven in both imperial and metric. The material comes from a collection of over 2,000 historic knitting patterns." Very minor wear on bottom of boards. Dust jacket has tiny tear and wrinkle at top of spi ne. N ear F ine/Ve ry Go od+
