A CD of two carefully scanned vintage knitting and crocheting books: the first is Minerva Volume 83, published in 1951; the second is Columbia-Minerva Volume 703, published in 1953. Both are full of fabulous vintage women’s clothes to knit or crochet: suits, tops, skirts, shawls and stoles, dresses, and boleros. Both books are complete.

The books contain patterns for women’s clothes in sizes 12 to 20 (vintage sizing – roughly a 30/32-inch bust to a 38/40-inch bust). Please note that a few styles are not in all sizes, but a proficient knitter should be able to make size adjustments fairly easily.

Pattern instructions were drafted using Imperial measurements, American knitting and crochet terms and American-sized needles/crochet hooks.

Please note: our CDs are not formatted to work with an Apple Mac, and some pages have our discreet logo on them, as shown in the photos.
