This is a collection of seven vintage Knitting Pattern Books reproduced in PDF format with patterns for ladies. Beautiful dresses, short sleeve sweater blouses, twin sets, vests, bolero, stoles, shawls, suits, socks, gloves, plus a wedding gown and beach ensemble.

Minerva and Monarch books have instructions on how to change sizes. I have added pages from these books to assist you.

These books are hard to find and part of my personal collection. I have reproduced them so that these lovely patterns are not lost in time. Each of these books may be purchased separately but you receive a huge saving with this collection!
