Free Vintage Magazine – Stitchcraft August- September 1946 with lots of knitting patterns

My Stitchcraft collection skips some issues after October 1945, so the next one is this crazy hat number, August – September 1946.

Really, what was the designer thinking? That hat is simply bonkers.

There are a few more crazy hats, a lovely bedjacket that makes me wish I was better at lacy patterns (33-35 inch bust), two short sleeved jumpers with bows at the neck (also 33-35 inch bust), a man’s plain pullover in honeycomb stitch (40-42) and three charming jumpers – white short sleeves for 32-34 inch bust; shorts sleeved cardigan jumper for 32-34 inch bust; and short or long sleeves with interesting stripe and bobble pattern (referred to as ZigZag jumper) for 33-35 inch bust. On the back cover (pattern on page 4) is a lovely embroidered hat and handbag.

There is a tiny book review for Dress Making and Dress Design by Bernard Del Monte, on page 9, which grumbles that it doesn’t cover cutting on the bias and that “surely a normal female with a 34-inch bust does not usually have hips measuring 40 inches.” This book intrigues me.
