Fall sunshine has us ready for cooler temps and our new Archival Wool Cap (shot at our favorite Rock Creek Farm corn maze in Colorado). Pair your cap with an update of our Archival Zip Cardigan made from the same soft, sturdy merino wool. Stay tuned for the formal release of these cardigans next week.

From the archives – WWII knitting patterns

April 17th, 2014

During WWII, citizens in the US and UK were encouraged to knit garments for servicemen.  Trolling ebay, I found a sampling of the many patterns for sweaters, mitts, mufflers and socks.  The patterns are timelessly stylish and worthy of reissue.  I’m especially fond of the service cardigan and the marksman’s gloves (which would be perfect for cyclo-commuting).  If you wish to complete your own WWII ensemble, nab one of these ebay patterns or order one from HJS Studio Patterns or the extraordinary  Vintage Knitting Lady.
