Description

Picture Knits - Vintage 1980s Knitting

'Picture Knits - 20 Patterns, plus how to design your own'

By Marilyn Rawlings & Jane Taylor

Published 1984

This great book is a must for any vintage knitwear lovers, and it's a special treat for any 80s fans too as all the patterns included are VERY 1980s indeed!

The introduction reads -

'Picture Knits is for knitters who are looking for new designs to make and for those who want to learn how to create their own. It isn't difficult and you don't have to be an experienced knitter to learn. Picture sweaters are always popular, but are often prohibitively expensive to buy ready made. The obvious answer is to make your own.

Picture Knits is two books in one. The first part gives 20 new designs with instructions and knitting charts. The second part guides you through the process of designing your own sweater.

Instructions are included on every stage of designing a picture sweater - drawing a sketch, making a chart, calculating yarn quantities and adding special touches.

'You will be able to make a picture knit at a fraction of designer prices - and to create it exactly as you want it'

Patterns include -

Hot air balloon
Lady on a leopardskin rug
Bears
Autumn Stripes
Yorkshire Moors
Farm Yard
Large Lady
Sunset Sea
Palm Tree Scene
Camera on a strap

(see photos for some of the great designs included!)

There are a couple of designs for men included, plus a child's sweater with a cat.

The book offers guidance on knitting techniques, stranding and weaving, crossing colours and darning in the ends, plus special effects, embroidery and trimmings.

The patterns and instructions and clear with simple to follow illustrations. There is an alphabet grid included so you can personalise your knits with your own names or phrases!

A fabulous book!

In vintage condition, not pristine. There are some small marks, wear, slight discolouration and ageing spots to both the front/back covers and some scuffs to the edges/corners of the covers. The edges of the pages are very slightly discoloured but the pages themselves are in good condition. There are none missing and no major damage inside the book.

Measurements -
286mm x 220mm x 15mm

If you have any questions, please get in touch via Etsy Conversations.

DESCRIBING ITEMS ACCURATELY

Please read all descriptions and check photographs carefully to make sure you are clear on what you are buying. I describe all items in detail and provide item measurements at the end of each listing.

Vintage / bric-a-brac items are (by their nature) not in 100% perfect or brand new condition. Please be aware of this when purchasing. Many vintage items have imperfections such as crazing, cracking, chipping or visable ageing or discolouration. I will describe any flaws in the listing and if the flaws are substantial I will provide close-up photographs of imperfections.

Please understand that product photographs can vary in colour slightly from screen to screen.

If you are interested in an item but want to know more before you buy, please contact me and I will be happy to help. I am happy to provide extra photographs upon request, and answer any queries you may have.

IMPORTANT GREETING CARD INFORMTION

All of the greeting cards I sell in my shop (with the exception of vintage greeting cards) are my own original designs, created and published by me under the name 'Dilys Treacle Treasures'.

Dilys Treacle Treasures greeting cards are designed and prepared for print here in Sheffield, then digitally printed externally by a professional greeting card printer. All designs are completely flat / smooth, with no added embellishments, flittering, glittering, foiling or handmade finishes.

My creative process involves using pens and pastels, reclaimed / vintage fabrics, embellishments, cottons / threads, papers and boards (printed and plain) and hand-sewing / machine stitching. The design you see on the front of any of my cards has started life as a handmade / drawn artwork. Sometimes the artwork can take many hours to sew / collage / draw.

Once I complete a design, I digitally photograph it. Then I use Photoshop to prepare the digital file for printing. The physical design is a one-off piece which remains here in my archive! The digital copy is sent to print and arrives back as a traditional greeting card. I do not print in-house.

Envelopes and cello packaging are sourced from UK suppliers to the greeting card industry and when the greeting cards return from print, they are packaged here in Sheffield by me.

When you buy a Dilys Treacle Treasures greeting card, please be aware that it is a digital copy of an original handmade design. My card designs are intended to have a handmade look, just like the original piece. At first glance, it may look as though you could reach out and touch a card made from real pieces of fabric, or feel real stitching or hand-drawn oil pastel marks. But please note, none of the cards I sell in my shop are actually hand-made or individually hand-drawn using pens or pastels (as this would take me hours!)

If you are thinking of making a purchase, please take a moment to make sure that you're happy with my shop policies, and those of Etsy.

If you have any further questions before making a purchase, please message me and I will be very happy to help!
