1940's Knitting - Patons & Baldwins No.184

Hello there!
Sorry for the current lack of free vintage patterns here lately, I have been overwhelmed with work for the last few months and have fallen supremely behind on posting my finds and answering emails, If you have emailed me recently I will get back to you really soon I promise!

So while I struggle to get back on top of things here is a quick pattern booklet from Scribed to fill the gap! Enjoy!

  2. Hi, i am new here.. Love the patterns...:-). Are the needles sizes US or UK sizes? I am guessing UK, but i am Dutch so i use the metric needle sizes..:-)..
    Love this blog, going to browse through it with coffee...:-)...

    1. Hi Irene!! Thank you I am delighted you like the sight!

      I think for this booklet the needle sizes are UK, though the booklet was printed in Australia. The pattern I looked at mentioned size 10 (3.25 mm) and 12 (2.75 mm) needles, which for the UK vintage knitting patterns I have is a typical size for knitting on 4 ply. There is a needle conversion chart on my help page which might be useful!


This is an ongoing project and I welcome any help or suggestions that you can give, so please feel free to leave a comment or a suggestion for a pattern link, all help will always be credited and very much appreciated :-) Spam will be deleted!
