Today’s D-Day, the anniversary of the first troop landings at Normandy during WWII. I’m not a big war buff, but I’ve heard and seen a few references to the historical significance of today, and thought I’d use history as inspiration for today’s entry.
Normally, I pick patterns from all over the place, but today, I want to look at a selection of Susan Crawford‘s patterns. Susan’s a knitwear designer who specializes in vintage-inspired patterns, and she’s blow-your-mind talented. Check out some of my faves:
Wow. Simple and beautiful and nautically delicious.
Necklinesssssss! This one’s buttoned up and would look awesome with a short, tailored skirt.
Holy wow. Great details, and so much work! I love it.
Amazing!!! I love the drape and delicacy of this piece. This one would definitely see a lot of wear time in my wardrobe.
She’s done a ton of great stuff! Check out her Ravelry designer page to see her pieces! Share your favorite vintage patterns with me in the comments!
(And win some yarn to knit those vintage pieces)
