1930s knitting patterns

This week I've been listing one of my favorite finds, 1930s knitting and crochet pattern booklets. Pattern booklets from the depression era are rare, and these have so many pretty designs they're fun to even just flip through. I even have a plus size pattern booklet which is quite amazing, considering most standard patterns were around a 34 bust back then. I'm still going through and listing, but take a look, and start planning your next project!

Very beautiful and inspiring, thank you for posting it! I am a knitwear designer, vintage fashion lover and I have been collecting vintage knitting/crochet pattern books for years. I really appreciate when I stumble upon a treasure like this booklet.

Is the peasant top knitted? It's such a great looking top.

Oh how lovely the pattern are! Amazing how much people use to knitt, and now almost nothing.

I wish that I could knitt a jumper, but one day! One day I will have learned how to knitt a jumper, that I will be able to use.

Knitted are lovely! I've learn how to knit back then but now I forgot how haha.
I always want to have one good knitted jumper but it's hard for me to find the perfect size for me >.<

One of those models looks like young Jean Harlow~. Sigh, 30s knitting patterns are my favourite!
