One of my most favourite pastimes is rootling in second hand shops looking for furniture or garments to makeover and relove. This afternoon I found some lovely very old knitting patterns from before decimalisation in the UK. They are mainly designed for slim women, and very fitted. There is one gentleman posing with his cigarette. The Pram set at the end is very Cath Kidston in vibe.  Here they are for you to enjoy too.
