Announcement    I specialise in British vintage knitting and crochet patterns from the 1930s to the 1950s and are available as instant downloads. Patterns with a bust size of 40" or over are tagged with 'plus size' so if you are looking for a larger size do a search with that and it should pull up everything as some patterns are multi-size and cover a range from 32" to 46"

The original patterns are scanned then digitally cleaned up (if needed) and each page enlarged to fit to A4. A pdf copy is produced that carries a faint watermark. I also include a tip sheet that have needle conversion sizes and hints on getting the correct tension or gauge and substituting modern yarns for vintage.

I have a blog with more information on vintage knitting patterns, my attempts to knit vintage and other knitting type things http://www.prettyoldpatterns.blogspot.co.uk

If you have any questions or are looking for something specific then please get in touch

Thank you for dropping by and I hope that you find something you like
Please add me to your favourites and keep re-visiting as I regularly updated stock.

Sharing fabulous things with fabulous people

I have this astonishing collection of knitting patterns that show that we can be glamorous and stylish and fabulous and unique. I started collecting them when I wasn't knitting and thought how cool they were but now I realise they tell another story too, not just of the fashion of the ages but the social history too. They tell of technological developments in textiles and knitting wool. They tell of the way that we have become larger in the past 70 years. They tell of how and what a woman was expected to be but also how we consider that today.

    Over the years I have amassed a large collection of vintage knitting (and some crochet) patterns as well as a few sewing ones too. I love the glamour of the 40s and 50s and want to share that with you.

Shop policies

Thank you for stopping by. I'm a collector of vintage craft supplies mainly knitting patterns but have realised that I do so little with them that it is much better for them to be shared among people who equally love them and want to use them.

Please read my policies fully and ask if you have any questions.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.
Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering..
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
