... found in a thrift store for a grand total of $1.50. the mens one is from the 50's, the columbia one ranks late 60's, and the sweater pamphlet on the bottom is 80's.



my favorite is the men's one on the left: "men's classics Choose-O-Matic makes it easy to customize your look!"

if i ever knit anything from these i'll be sure to post it. anyone ever found crazy vintage stuff?

80s is 'vintage' now? I bought vintage patterns when they were new, back in the 70s and 80s.

I don't know, if it was a women's sweater book, the 50's patterns might work.  During NY Fashion Week a lot of the fall lines had cuts that appeared to be inspired by the late fifties, early sixties.

The men's sweaters might be neat for an androgynous hipster look on a twenty-something female if they were made so that they were a bit fitted.

Besides, who doesn't want to utilize something called the "Choose-O-Matic".  I'm a fan of any O-Matic.  : )

I think they call 80s retro these days, which is just as confusing because the term is applied to several other decades, too...  Whatever word you could call it, I've got a little treasure trove of 80s pattern books, several by companies that don't exist anymore!  I swear somehow I'll figure out circulars and make these rad creations someday.
