Linda Ivell has been recreating vintage knitwear for over forty years. As an Art Historian working in museums, she has explored prestigious costume collections, researching and writing about historical fashions and our textiles heritage. A member of the Knitting and Crochet Guild, she is happiest when surrounded by wool, and all the possibilities a strand of yarn can inspire. She recreates vintage knitwear with her own label of Knitting for Victory.
I've seen one or two books on 'recreating vintage style' in my time as I am very much an aficionado. This, though is, by a long way, the most informative and satisfying one I have yet to behold.
The author’s passion for vintage knitwear is showcased in this exploration of Tyrolean-style designs. A delightful, if rather specialist book, that offers a unique blend of history, fashion and craft.
