A week later I had it in my hot little hands, and the other day I took some pictures of all the designs to share with you all, because I think this magazine has some really neat stuff! There are lots of sweaters in this one I could consider making. This magazine is also different from a lot of my vintage knittng magazines in that each design has a name, like modern patterns tend to. Most of my older magazines just have numbers for the patterns.
So without further adieu, I give you "Winter Sport Fashions . . ."
I really love the cover design, especially in this vivid red. It's hard to see here, but this sweater has a zippered front closure.
I really like this one too, although not for a man. I could see this with a tartan skirt . . .
Muahahaha! A pun! I love you, vintage knitting magazine!
Those toggles are hiding another front zipper - what a great idea!
The hood zips open to lay flat, AND there's a little zippered pocket at the bottom of the front placket!
This one is crocheted, side to side, in an interesting textured stitch.
Deep raglan brioche stitch sweater with oversized turtleneck that doubles as a hood. Yes, please!!
Cuff to cuff construction again, this time in knit.
Well, that's an original name!
"Quiet down! I'm on the phone!" I think it's interesting that the bottom hem is turned back the way you would do on sleeve cuffs. Doesn't seem very practical!
Oh boy, dolman sleeves. One of my biggest weaknesses!
More dolman sleeves!
OK, I went ice skating just about every day after school when I was a kid, because we lived across the street from a pond. I'm certain I never looked this cute!
Somehow these motifs have a tiki feel to me . . . not very conducive to skiing. Or sweater-wearing. But I like it!
So classic in black and white. But would you get a load of those eyebrows?! What's going on here?!
You can't see it here, but the contrasting insets down the outside of the leg and at the shoulder have a leaf lace pattern. I think this is pretty slick, although I don't see myself ever knitting it.
And of course you have to have hats and mittens.
So what do you think? As I write this, it's 70 degrees and sunny - a little hard to think about winter. But I love looking through vintage knitting magazines no matter what time of year!
