Free Patterns

A list of my free vintage knitting patterns, ranging from the 1930s to mid-1950s.

Blogger is a bit crazy with how it opens images now. To view a large printable size of the pattern pictures, right click on the image and select 'Open in a New Tab'.

If a pattern has (OS) after it, it means the sizing will include out-sizes/plus sizes, i.e. greater than 34 inches.
