The last years I’ve been in constant search of vintage inspired knits, sweaters especially. I’ve looking at RTW as well as patterns to knit, but found few. The patterns I’ve found has been a disappointment, either they have been to modernized or either the size has been too small. Vintage patterns usually only come in one size and being a tall and curvy, definitely not in my size.
So imagine my delight when I discovered Tasha’s knit-along at by gum, by golly! She finished her knit-along in June last year and all the posts about the instructions can be read here: Briar Rose Vintage Knit-along. Tasha teaches how to re-size a vintage pattern which is something I really want to learn and the Briar Rose is a very cute sweater from WWII. The pattern is generously uploaded by A Rarer Borealis.
Better late than never, I will be participating in Tasha’s knit-along! I already have some merino wool yarn in a pretty light green colour, Viking Baby Ull, that I think will work well with this pattern. Tasha herself looks this lovely in her Briar Rose:
