Some styles never go out of fashion because their elegance and simplicity have a timeless quality, which endures as other fashions come and go. The Hollywood of the fifties epitomizes a chic classic style and is the inspiration behind the patterns in this fabulous new collection. Exquisitely simple sweaters, jackets, twin sets, capes and boleros have been brought up-to-date with contemporary yarns. The 24 patterns in this book cover a range of styles: there’s a black polo-neck sweater which can be teamed with either cropped trousers or a full satin skirt; a gorgeous soft sweater with pom-pom ties; an oversized sweater with a cowl neck hood for the super-casual look; a big lacy shawl; a short-sleeved, open-collar sweater in fine wool; a sleeveless knee-length dress; a classic twinset; a Chanel-type, collarless jacket with pocket details and a delicate, silvery cape for glamorous evenings out. Using a wide range of yarns, in elegant colours to suit any outfit and any occasion from smart to casual, these are patterns which are quick to make but which will last and last.
