This simple to make wrap is made with a combination of worsted weight yarn and a metallic twist yarn in a complementary colour on size 8 needles. If you are new to knitting vintage, this pattern would be a great place to start - it is very simple in construction and lovely when completed. You could make one for yourself or for a special gift in no time - and such a luxurious wrap to chase away the chills!
This pattern is a special edition that was created for an exhibit in the D.A.R. Museum in Washington, D.C. A beautiful design in two different sleeve variations, is sized for a Misses or Women's size 34 with instructions included to increase or decrease the size for the perfect fit. The pattern is made with Worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles. As a special bonus, this pattern is written in the 1902 format as well as a modern day format to assist in making this fashion statement of yesteryear!
In the 1888 pattern for men's long underwear, the yarn used in the pattern was intended for a heavier weight garment. In this pattern, a slightly larger size 5 needle and a sport weight yarn are used to make the drawers. This is intended to be a lighter weight version of the earlier pattern. Also required are small buttons and a lenght of bias braid to be sewn at the waistband for a place to attach suspenders. The pattern could be modified to use an elastic waist band, but at the time that this pattern was written, the elastic waistband was not to be invented for another 50 years!
This set of Men's long underwear are in two separate patterns, one pattern for the bottoms and one for the top. They are written in Men's size MEDIUM using a fingering weight yarn on (modern) size 2 needles. They are made in a tighter knit and are intended to be for the coldest of weather. If a larger size is needed, use a slightly heavier gauge yarn with larger needles, such as a DK weight yarn on size 4 needles would work out to a size large. This is quite a handsome pattern, the recommended color to use is a natural or light grey and the leggings are knitted with red for the waistband and cuffs. There is also a braid sewing trim that is to be placed along the waistband for the drawers to be held up by suspenders. Of course, you could modernize the pattern with an elastic waistband, but at the time of this pattern elastic waist bands did not even exist for another 50 years!
We often get requests for long underwear patterns, and this sweet pattern from 1887 is just perfect! The pattern is written for a size SMALL usinga sock weight or fingering weight yarn and (modern) size 4 needles. However, if you wish to make it in a larger size the instructions recommend using a heavier weight yarn such as a sport or baby weight yarn and larger needles.
