I found one more thing of interest at the textile sale: a bag of Interweave Knits magazines for only 25 cents each. They are various issues from 2001-2003. Some had a few patterns that had been cut out, but for a quarter each, I figured they’d be great just for inspiration.
Well, I found quite a few things that I liked, actually. As I was cutting them out, I marveled at just how many patterns were left. Did the magazine publish more per issue back then? I could not bring myself to put these in the recycle bin. Now, granted, some of the pullovers are a bit oversized, but a lot are classic enough to be made and worn today. Here are some of the pattern highlights:
- double wedding ring quilt
- cherry blossom shawl
- hidden passion socks
- a lot of women’s pullovers (I even left a few cardigan patterns)
- nearly all of the men’s sweaters (I’m pretty sure they are all there)
- ann budd’s grand plan* patterns for vests, pullovers, and tams
*Grand plan patterns include every possible measurement imaginable for a completely custom fit.
