During World War I, thousands of garments and accessories were knitted for the men at the front to help with the war effort. This book brings together the genuine military knitting patterns of the day, taken from wool company booklets, needlework magazines and government pamphlets. The patterns are written in modern form, with useful advice on yarn choice and techniques for today’s knitter.
