Vintage Patterns at Purple Kitty


I am going to be lazy this week and instead of posting a pattern from my collection, provide instead a link to a free pattern site with fifty vintage women’s sweater patterns from the 1940’s and 1950’s, originally sent to me by Purple Kitty.

(I love it when someone else does all the work for me).


The rest of the site is well worth exploring; who can resist an afghan with French Poodles knitted into it?

When I first looked at your title, I thought it said "Vintage Pattern for a Purple Kitty". I thought that really doesn't sound like Shay, so it must be something really wonderful, and it was! Just not a kitty pattern. What can I say? I haven't yet had my caffeine. lol

When I went there this morning I noticed there were a couple of teens or early 20's sweaters up. Sweet.

"I never saw a purple cat
I never hope to see one
But I can tell you and that's that
I'd rather see than be one."

(with apologies to somebody...Edgar Guest, maybe?)

Cool site. Thank you!

I made that afghan...not the one with the French poodles, the striped one behind it...for my son and he loved it. It came out large and soft and just scrumptious.
