This lavish book celebrates the patterns and designs of 1940s knitwear.
Drawings and photographs from the original pattern magazines accompany modern colour photographs of the garments knitted up for today's wear.
In addition, it provides a history of wartime Britain and America, often using the actual words of the knitters and designers used by the fashion magazines.
