Vintage Pattern Rescue

Want to knit a vintage sweater or add a vintage pattern to your collection? The following patterns (rescued at the local senior center) could be just what you are seeking. Take one, take two or more, or take them all. I'll pay the postage, too. Update September 23, 2010 - all of the patterns have been taken. Thank you for your interest.

  1. Those are so cool. You were right to rescue them.

  2. I am so glad I didn't see any that I own! I found a MMaxim sweater kit in my stuff during the summer and decided I had to make it before I bought something new. So, I am now knitting on a bright red sweater with bows around the body and a huge poinsettia on the right shoulder. Big question is will I ever where this thing? Maybe, you never know! Those patterns you rescued brought a smile to my lips! B.

  3. Wish I could knit!!! What neat vintage patterns, timeless.
