Did YOUR Grandma Knit That?

Welcome to installment one of DYGKT. 

My Grandma, whom I affectionately called Grammy, was a serious knitter. With any serious knitter you will find a stash. Grammy's stash contained a pile of vintage knitting pamphlets and I am going to share them with you, my blog reading friends. 

Today I am going to share Bernat Men Book No. 169, which was published in 1970. 


Where you alive in 1970? I was barely school age when this hit the knit scene. 

Check out some of these fashions. I tell you this brings back sweet memories of Grammy knitting day in and day out. That cover sweater has actually been on my mind for a couple years now. I really want to make this sweater. However, the body is knit in like 100 pieces (me exaggerate?). There is a front, back and two side panels. Perhaps this might be my breakout in redesigning to knit in the round. HUMMMM 

Here are some more beauties found inside this pamphlet:



These scream sexy to me!

I love vintage patterns...these pics crack me up. I especially like the dude in the belted vest. Only in the 70's!

And there is NO good reason why that sweater on the cover needs to be knit in so many pieces. Side panels? WTH?
