Original 1940s Knitting Patterns

UK DELIVERIES ONLY.  IF YOU WISH TO BUY PLEASE CONTACT ALICE ROSE PATTERNS TO RECEIVE AN ACCURATE POSTAL CHARGE.

Here you can find a selection of 1940s original paper knitting patterns. A lovely reflection of the fashions of the 1940s. The patterns have mostly been printed on a very light weight paper, usually in black and white and in a small print format, which was common practice from this era, especially during the war years.

The yarn used was mainly 3ply wool, sometimes 4 ply and occasionally a heavier weight wool. Time, dedication and patience was needed to produce the garments compared to the yarns that we have today.

Also please bear in mind, if you decide to buy, that these leaflets are well over 70 years old, so will usually show their age, with creasing, folds, fading etc.,  Please do not expect to find patterns in pristine condition, I do try to describe the condition of each pattern in the individual listings, but if you have any questions do contact Alice Rose Patterns.

They are lovely collectors items, but if you would prefer a PDF of the original please see the Image Gallery where you can find instructions to purchase a PDF, which will be emailed to you.
