Vintage 50s knitting / sewing / needlework magazine

Stitchcraft Magazine July 1951
A monthly knitting/needlecraft magazine published in the UK (London)

Softback magazine - 30 pages (including cover) - cover in colour - internal pages in black and white
This is the smaller format produced just after the Second World War (i.e. smaller than the pre-war format but slightly larger than the format produced during the war)

This issue features some attractive knitting patterns - including the cover sweater, a lacy twinset and a pretty sweater with a cabled yoke. Sewing projects include an applique apron, an embroidered collar and a cut work trolley cloth. Most of these sewing projects require transfers which were not included with the magazine (and had to be purchased separately) but the illustrations are helpful and the experienced needlewoman should be able to replicate many of the designs simply by looking at the illustrations
Finally, there is a sensational crocheted hat, made from macrame twine. String never looked this good!

Full instructions are provided for the knitting and crochet projects

Please note that this is a UK magazine and that adjustments may need to be made by international knitters/crocheters (e.g. knitting pin/needle sizes and crochet abbreviations)

In resonably good condition, although there are several areas of staining to the cover (please see photos). Rubbing to spine. General age discolouration. Ink annotation (made by newsagent) to back cover. Binding is tight. Internal pages are free from stains, tears and annotations

You are purchasing the ORIGINAL magazine, not a copy
