Original vintage knitting patterns - 1940s baby clothes - Stitchcraft knitting booklet - to fit babies aged 6 to 12 months

The Stitchcraft 'Crawlers' Book
Booklet featuring delightful knitting patterns for babies aged 6 to 12 months

Published by 'Stitchcraft' (UK) - undated but probably dating from the late 1940s - produced 'in complete conformity with the Authorised Economy Standards' which prevailed during and just after World War II

20 pages (including cover)
Dimensions: approx. 5.5" x 8"

Features a range of baby garments: cardigans, dresses, pram suits, bootees, sun suit and the like. For use with fine baby yarns. If you have any queries re. specific patterns, please feel free to ask

Designed for use with a vintage yarn called 'Quickerknit' - which 'is thicker than 4-ply and finer than double knitting'
Recommended needle sizes (as stated in patterns): old UK needles sizes 7, 8 and 9 (the metric equivalents being 4.5mm, 4.0mm and 3.75mm; the US equivalents being 7, 6 and 5)

In good vintage condition, considering that it was printed on cheaper wartime/post-war paper. The staples have started to rust but are still intact. Quite a bit of creasing/rubbing to 'spine'. Some moderate creasing and age discolouration to pages. Otherwise good. No stains, major tears or annotations

Please note that this is a UK pattern booklet and that international purchasers will need to make adjustments (e.g. needle sizes)
