This book is a republication of the 1972 Stitch in time by Jane Welllar. This book covers knitting and crochet patterns from 1920's to the 1940's. The patterns have been reworked using modern yarns and each pattern has been adapted to include a wider range of modern sizes. The orginal patterns and pictures are also included as well as an overview of the style and social context of each decade.
I would recommend this book. Not only is it beautifully presented with great photos (perfect for the coffee table) but also a great source of information on which modern yarns would work with vintage patterns - even if you don't knit any of the patterns in the book.
