1950s Knitting Patterns

The 1950’s was a year of innovative fashion styles and 1950’s knitting patterns were no exception.  This time period was when full skirts, boat neck lines and sheath wiggle dresses were all the rage.  Peter pan collars or tied scarves were often worn with a lot of the clothing, even dresses, and twin sets and fitted suits were an iconic style often found in the typical woman’s wardrobe.

Whatever styles of the times, you can find 50s knitting patterns of those very same designs and patterns, using pretty lace knits or even heavier tight knit patterns suitable for winterwear, at The Vintage Pattern Shop in our selection of 1950s vintage knitting patterns.

For example, for office wear that speaks confidence, but will keep you suitably warm in winter when traveling to and from work, we have a vogue sheath dress knitting pattern with a collar that adds a look of sophistication.  Pair this with any cardigan from the vintage knitting patterns 1950s collection, items from our 1950s accessories such as gloves or a clutch bag, and you have mirrored and emulated the wonderful iconic style of the 1950s.

Patterns inspired by sportswear, but still adding that element of glamour and chic, were also extremely popular and lent themselves brilliantly to knitting patterns in the form of tank tops, dresses and jumpers.  The sports inspired jumpers created in the 50s have made a come back in recent years, as all beautiful vintage eventually fashion does, and has been seen in shops throughout the UK.  You can also find an excellent choice of 50s beach wear and summer wear here in our 50s vintage knitting patterns.
