    Lots of vintage knitting patterns most of them felt like modern stuff that you might find in the wintertime stock at JC Penny'sI liked the dog sweater and shrug pattern but there wasn't anything super different that would make this a 3 or 4 star knitting book although it will be a good addition to my knitting library I wouldn't recommend it Go out and buy The Sweater book or Man's Knitting Book Classic Patterns from the 20's to the 50's or Retro Knits Cool Vintage Patterns for Men Women and Children from the 1900s through the 1970s which were great pattern collections that have been modernized Although the reader should be warned that many are in small sizes like US 4 to 10 and nothing in plus sizes192 pages and bought used2 stars

    This large softcover book is filled with peculiar patterns and I usually LOVE old designs so go figure but was at least interesting to look at Decent instructions for them and a nice bit of history and some fun old pix made this three stars but wouldn't make the cut into my personal library there wasn't anything I'd want to actually make

    I read this book because it was available at my local library It was just okay of all the patterns offered I only liked 2 It felt a little bit too much like a promotional piece for Lion Brand yarns
