Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

I found this sweet knitted baby blanket in an American Thread Company booklet, no date, looks like 1950’s.

It uses green and pink baby yarn, but you could change the colors to your preference.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

Knitting Chair Back and Arms Pattern - Vintage Crafts and More

Today’s pattern is a knitted chair back and arm pieces. Used to protect the chair’s upholstery from dirty heads and hands, I’ve seen several done in crochet but this is the first knitted pattern I’ve come across.

It’s a pretty pattern with fringe that would also look nice as a couch pillow.

Materials needed are Pearl Cotton Size 5 and a pair of Plastic Knitting Pins size No. 1 (2mm size).

Some of the abbreviations used for the pattern are below.

Knitting Abbreviations:
k……………knit
p……………purl
O……………thread or yarn over
tog………….together
p.s.s.o………pass sl st over k st
*(asterisk)….Repeat instructions following asterisk as many more times as specified, in addition to original.

Repeat instructions in parentheses as many times as specified. For example: “(K1, O, p 3) 4 times,” means to make whatever is in parentheses 4 times in all.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

How to Make Fringe - Vintage Crafts and More

Adding fringe or tassels to any crochet or knit project is easy and fun to do.

This pattern sheet of instructions for knotted fringe was found in a 1953 American Thread booklet for crocheted and knitted Stoles and Shrugs.

Normally, we think of fringe as the finishing touch for an afghan, but these knotted fringe and tassels would look great on scarves, rugs, blankets, pillows, and more.

They are made using any type or color of yarn that would match your project, wool, nylon or cotton.
