Traditional Knits

This Bear Brands book from the 1950's features Eisenhower-era pre-teens having good wholesome fun. Lots of patterns for pullovers, cardigans, vests, and winterwear for boys and girls. Artwork shows kids going to school, jumping rope, having birthday parties, skating, and enjoying picnics.

Quick Knits from Columbia-Minerva has fashions from the mid-1960's, including sweaters, jackets, and a coat.
