Holy Carp! Why did I not think to look here sooner?


It's the New York Public Library Image Browser-they have TONS of pictures of clothing and people and animals from everywhere and every era! Unfortunately, if the pattern wasn't all on one page they seem to cut it off, but plenty of them are all together and look neat-o.

so I was just googling looking for a yarn shop, and what do I see ? All those patterns from 1917/1918 ...


I love the vintage look, and maybe i'll start on the little girl's hood.. Such a cutie.

ah! i really want that little "miriam" hat in my size. i am assuming it is a child's pattern. i don't knit but maybe my knitter friends can figure it out.
thanks for posting that site!

Hi everyone. I found this site with Vintage Knit and Crochet patterns.


It's got a really nice crochet head scarf.

Also another site, which has been around for a while has added some knew patterns.


Check out Mrs. Estabrook's cape, doesn't it look like Clapotis!?, except that Clapotis has a more sophisticated stitch pattern I think.  Wink Cheesy

Enjoy, and keep up the excellent craftin'.

Just came across a website of awesome vintage patterns -- lady is selling CD's of scanned pattern collections dating from 1900 to 1963.

I especially like some of the hat and handbag collections...


There are also lots of patterns that aren't so kitchy and would be beautiful even by today's standards.  Lots of interesting stuff.

Hope you enjoy!  Grin

I found this site the other day. Best part is, you get 3 different book downloads for signing up for the email, and then once or twice a month, they'll send a free pattern. It's a cool deal.

Wow!  Check out that floral crocheted headscarf!  I wonder if my partner in the headband swap would like one of those?  Te he, maybe not.

Be carefull with daintywork though. She has a program: every day a new vintage pattern, garanteed never the same. Well forget about that and when you complain she just disables your password: fraud nothing more nothing less.

this is a searchable archive of vintage home economic textbooks from the last century and beyond.  it can be a little difficult to find the actual "how to" parts, but there are some fabulous illustrations and it's a really interesting snapshot of how the field has changed over the years.
just thought i'd share!
