Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

This morning I’m sharing a pretty vintage baby bunting and hood pattern to knit. It has wide ribbing with a satin ribbon edge and a zipper in the front.

Just in time to make for holiday gift giving or bazaars, this would be wonderful to keep a little one warm in the upcoming cold winter months.

From the Star Baby Book No. 111, it uses 19 ounces of the American Thread Company’s  “DAWN” Knitting Worsted which was 100% wool or “DAWN” Nylon Worsted.

These yarns are no longer available but any modern knitting yarn that is smooth and a medium width can be substituted. You must match a gauge of 6 sts = 1 inch with a pair of No. 6 Knitting needles.

On an earlier post I shared a Beginner Knitting Manual. The manual is basic and you may need a bit more knowledge to finish these socks, but there are several places on the internet that explain how to knit socks.

On the WikiHow website they have tutorial on How to Knit Socks: 22 steps (with pictures) explaining the process.

Welcome to today’s VTNS Fan Freebie Friday! As Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers we love to share all kinds of vintage craft patterns with our Facebook Fans.

Normally in vintage booklets we see crocheted edgings patterns, but today we’re sharing knitted edging and insertion patterns. They are from a 1936 Anne Orr book number 37 called, Decorative Bedspreads – Knitting. It was great to find among the pretty bedspread patterns these edgings.
