VINTAGE BABY CLOTHES PATTERNS

WHERE VINTAGE 3PLY IS STATED TRY USING MODERN 4PLY - WORK TENSION SQUARE FIRST TO SEE IF A CHANGE OF NEEDLES IS NEEDED.

vintage collectable baby knitting pattern

Bestway 3437. Vintage knitting pattern for baby from the 1950s. These Bestway designs are so very collectable, so pretty just to look at on a wet afternoon! I have hundreds of them.  This little matinee and cardigan I actually knitted for my baby sister in the late 1950's when I was only 10years old! This pattern knits up small enough for today's newborns.  It uses Quick Knitting which has no real equivalent today but try 4ply - make a tension square as described at the beginning of the pattern to see. A good substitute for Quick knit is a full round wool (if you compare wool strands you will see what I mean. (Quick knit was lighter and looser spun than 4ply or DK at the time.)
