Quite a while ago, I came across this beautiful free vintage pattern online at the Victoria and Albert Museum (After reading a great post by Fifties Fever!). Im not really a knitter, I once tried to knit a jelly baby figure and it came out with a lop sided square head! Anyhoo, my nana is a brilliant knitter and offered to knit one for me!
Isn’t it lovely!
And here it is, she did a great job!
It has been taken down now but im sure you will be able to find the pattern somewhere else online, I will dig through my files and see if I still have it. If you would like to try this pattern out for yourself you can find it for free here or here! I would love to see your versions!
Theres just something lovely about hand knitted items, you know how much time and effort has gone into them.
They’re not as disposable as some items today and have a great story behind them!
