Friday knitting patterns

It feels like forever since I posted a knitting pattern and this book is so sweet ... a book of bazaar patterns from what must be the 1970s.


I'm not sure which one I'd rather knit first ...

I've been looking for a tea cosy pattern for ages and I don't exactly love any of these. But on the upside I can play with one of them and make them in the pretty pastel cottons I have set aside for it. All three are knit so that's good.


I quite like the giraffe ... it's in crochet. Time to learn a new skill I suppose?


And how about the gorgeous doggie sweaters ... definitely what the best dressed dog in 1973 was wearing.


Have you got a favourite?

That Boxer looks so humiliated in his little yellow shawl. I think you should knit one of those for a 'big dog' friend and check the reaction! x

Thanks for stopping in at my blog! Sorry though I can't much help in making finishing less work than it is... I am thinking my border collie needs a winter coat (we get more rain than snow here on the west coast of Canada) so knitted would not work well, I guess it will be polar fleece though...

The giraffe is my favourite, don't think my crochet skills would ever be up for that though. Happy knitting.

Yep I love the giraffe too. You should definately learn how to crochet so you can make him!

That penguin is very cute. I'm sure my gran had this book and made quite a few of the designs from it. All good fun.
