Clever, and delicious. Just like the man himself.
Franklin, our vintage knits columnist, has once again done us proud with the Pineapple bag pattern in the Spring & Summer issue.
He’s written a post on his blog about the joys and challenges of reading vintage patterns.
Written in Franklin’s inimitable and hysterical style (although be warned, the language is a little bit salty), it’s a fascinating insight into what passed for a set of decent pattern instructions way back when. And the work that Franklin goes through every issue to turn these wonderful antique patterns into a set of instructions we can actually understand.
