A Handknit Romance: 22 Vintage Designs With Lovely Details
By Jennie Atkinson
Publisher: Interweave Books

Reviewed by Caitlin Eaton, Editor of AllFreeKnitting


As every knitter already knows, knitting is a stylish, fashion-forward and timeless hobby.  Inside A Handknit Romance: 22 Vintage Designs With Lovely Details, readers are treated to a stunning collection of lightweight knits - all with a subtle retro influence.  From women's clothing - like lacy blouses and tunics - to lingerie and lace gloves, this gorgeous book has a pattern for every vintage enthusiast.


Make a variety of retro and glamorous projects ranging from small accessories that best suit beginners, to full-size garments, like lace skirts and blouses, for the seasoned knitter.  Designer Jennie Atkinson's attention to vintage detail is astounding.  Every delicate piece in this collection exudes elegance and femininity, especially the 1930s-inspired lace blouse crafted with light crochet cotton.  If you've been looking for a book that features fashionable patterns that are vintage but still wearable, I highly recommend getting a copy of A Handknit Romance.

It would be nice if you could see some of the patterns to be able to tell if they would be nice or not. Shame can't look at anything.

I would love to add this book to my collection of vintage patterns!

This really interests me, vintage, beautiful, feminine pieces. I would love to knit the lingerie. Can I win this amazing book ?

Sounds great, wish it were available

The patterns sound stunning. I would love to own this beautiful book!

I would love to add this book to my library.
