Vintage Patterns to Knit and Crochet

Sweater Girl [swět'ər gurl] n. :

1. a glamorous 1930-40's starlet who paired a form-fitting sweater with an accentuated bust line
2. a vintage fashion style
3. a twenty-first century knitter eager to capture the vintage style of said glamorous starlets

In 1937 a young, snugly be-sweatered Lana Turner briefly sashayed across the screen of They Won't Forget, and a nation of men demanded to know just who "the sweater girl" was and where they could see her again.  

Turner's "sweater girl" look established her as a force to be reckoned with, and her siren style endured well throughout the 1960's. There is no reason why we can't have Lana's style today.  

Vintage patterns give we modern stitchers the opportunity to capture that gilded Hollywood style without exorbitant vintage store prices or the problems attending aging organic materials.  At Sweater Girl Knits, we scavenge the estate sales, auctions, musty bins and basements to bring you the most stylish vintage patterns around.
