More knitting patterns for the few, the proud, the knitters who look at this site

PLEASE NOTE: These patterns are around 60 or 70 years old, so I'm betting you may have a tough time finding the yarn they're referencing! The sizing may be a bit different than today, too, considering the corsets they were wearing and all (or were they calling them "girdles" by then?)! I'm thinking the best thing to do is just do the math: find a yarn/needle combo that works to give you the suggested guage and make sure that the suggested gauge with the number of stitches cast on will give you the size you desire (stitches per inch X inches around you). Adjust from there. Not for the fainthearted, but really not that hard, either.

Click here for link to this pattern---I'd make it just for that collar!

These are great!! You've inspired me to crawl flea markets and stoop sales for knitting patterns...
