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.
