Every family has a tradition or two during the holiday season. Ours has always been to spend the day at my grandma’s house. As we get closer and closer to Christmas day, I’ve come to the realization that there isn’t too much time left to finish up these last few knitted gifts I have still waiting on their needles. Of course it’s only right that in the midst of the procrastination I’ve been craving something new and excited to knit just because.
If you’re tired of knitting the same Christmas knits year after year, why not try something with a little jazz to it? Vintage-styled clothing is making its way back in style. In fact, many of the trends we have today were forged long ago, forgotten for a time, then brought back. Now, you can replicate those once-popular design with these vintage knitting patterns. We’ve got everything you need to bundle up this winter while paying homage to a time where Grandma may have been the most well-dressed in the bunch. From sweater to scarf to hat knitting patterns, you simply can’t go wrong with this wintery mix of vintage knits.
