Minimalist giveaway #2

I used a random number generator to choose the winner of last week's pattern giveaway, and the winner is....

Mama Gina of Associated Bag!

Thanks everyone for stopping by and entering. This week's giveaway will also feature vintage patterns, but this time for you knitters:


First up is "All Time Favorites to Knit and Crochet" a pattern book from 1967 (I had to use a Roman numeral converter to figure this out from Copyright MCMLXVII!). This booklet features a lot of coats, some dresses and sweaters, a hat and a few items for men. Some of the pictures are truly priceless. The second pattern is a pattern copy I purchased from yesterknits. It is a Patons pattern from Great Britain (hence will have British terms and needle sizes) and looks to also be from the 60s.

This giveaway will run for one week (til Saturday 17 January). Please leave a comment below to enter--one per person, and you must leave some way for me to contact you (blog, email, ravelry id, etc) or your comment will not be entered. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

The pattern on the right looks SO intriguing! We're enjoying some snow in the Northeast so a contest warmed me right up (ok, well, that and the Berroco Geode sweater I've been working on - hooray!) Have a great weekend!

How fun! It's freezing here...I could use a few more sweater patterns! I also love your Shalom sweater and am searching for the perfect yarn to make it.

I love a contest. I am not one to win, usually, but what fun! I am always looking for a new project and a new challenge. Have a great day!

Those patterns look fantastic! I am currently knitting a mohair lace sweater from a mid 60s kit, and would love to explore more vintage options. Thanks for your amazing blog.
