1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Where might a girl find free 1970's knitting patterns online? on: April 25, 2010 11:17:59 AM
I have found alot of free patterns from the 30's and 40's, some from the 50's  at great sites like vintagepurls.Are there any sites like this that are focused on patterns from the 1970's?

Hello all.I know that the site m-patterns has been brought up.But, some of you may have reliezed that although they list a huge selection of patterns, only about a quarter of the womens patterns are actually available, and none of the mens, girls, or boys are there.Also, the patterns are hard to format into a proper print, cut, and tape lay out.Lekala sewing patterns-http://leko-mail.net/cdpw.html-has all the patterns plus more.Just click on download sample pattern in set size and you will have a pattern all ready to print out, albeit in one size.I believe the size is small, i made i bustier and it fit well and i have a 30 inch bust.click on view technical desbription to see the instructions(although they are in fractured english as the company is russian)i suppose you could either increase the scale or make adjustments after printing if you need a different size.I really hope this is of use to somebody, this is a great site and they have the bast selection of lingerie patterns of any company, meny nice dresses and a ton of cool coats and jackets+more.

Hi!I just got the amigurumi knits book by Hansi Singh.It is completly awesome and it has amazing patterns for veggies, insects, and undersea creatures. I am having major problems though. maybe i'm knitting impaired, but i haven't had any success so far with  any designs in the book.Here are a few of my issues:
1-Im having ALOT of trouble with small diameter circular knitting.And i mean really small, like 4 stitches. I cant really see what im doing and it's really confusing to make some of the increases.I can't get past the second row on the tomato because i don't know how to KLL and KRL with one or two stitches a needle.
2-some of the instructions are not clear enough for me.For example, in the star fish, after you pick up stitches on both sides of the arm to create the underarm(so youve got two dpn's on opposite sides) it just says to "continue, working back and forth in rows"So what? do i do the same 8 things to both sides? do i use a new needle?Do i treat the two sides as one?it just really doesn't specify exactly what is needed.
So, it would probabley be really hard to understand what i'm describing, but maybe somebody has the book and can help me out.I've tried three projects and failed.I can officially say that knitting makes me cry.If anyone has any tips, any tips at all, i'd be ever grateful to recieve them.Im sorry this was so long, but i have come to the limits of what i can do on my own and im really frustrated. and i need you guys's help!!!!THANK YOU THANK YOU THANKYOU!
