1930s Knitting Patterns

The Vintage Pattern Shop endeavours to provide you with an ever-changing catalogue of vintage knitting patterns available for purchase.  These patterns are available to you in the very same format, and using the very same patterns of the 1930s when knitting was also a popular pastime and knitwear fashionable and in high demand.

During WW1, people were asked to provide knitwear for the troops out on the battlefield, and as a result, knitting grew in popularity as a hobby and a passion.  Magazines began to provide regular instalments of knitting patterns.  1930s knitwear was made available to the masses and new styles and yarns were in high demand, especially amongst mothers providing the latest fashions and clothing for their households, and children who wished to pass the time doing something creative.

Before knitting grew so popular during the 1920s and 1930s, knitting patterns focused primarily on items such as socks and underwear, thermals and hosieries.  As the thirties progressed, items such as short barrel sweaters, which featured a wide waist band and fitted narrow sleeves, and pullovers and cardigans, increased in popularity.  Patterns became increasingly feminine, with delicate and intricate weaving patterns and variations of stitches adding finer details to even older styles of knitwear from previous decades.
