1955 Twin Set – free knitting pattern

Here’s a pretty twin set from My Home magazine’s 1955 Christmas edition. My Home was a British publication “for women who love their home”. I’ve compiled the pattern into a PDF to download.

    The knit pattern is useless without the design of the necklace and earrings!

    Absolutely lovely Twin set! Thank you for posting it. Can’t wait to get some yarn to knit this up.

    I have some vintage pattern books from the 30s, 40s, 50s & some 60s that I won & will be getting from eBay in the not to distant future. I can send you the list when I get them to see if there is a pattern you might be interested in. Would be more than happy to share any I have. Can’t believe the lengths some bidders are willing to go to get some of these vintage knitting patterns. Several got out of my price range very quickly while I’ve picked up a few nice ones for under $6.00US.

    Looks like I found another blog to read on a regular basis. I’ll check my current stash of magazines to see if I have anything from the 50s and drop you a line, can’t remember, off-hand what I do have. Thanks again.

    Hi Wendy! I’m slowly going through all my vintage magazines and scanning everything of interest, as well as my vintage knitting and crochet patterns. I’ll be putting some up in the next few days! I am happy to share the patterns I have with the knitting/crochet/vintage world for free, the more the merrier. :)

    Thank you so much for posting this – I just freecycled so any patterns from the 1930s – 1960s – wish I had posted them now for others to use.

    Thank you for the free twinset pattern but I am confused what 28 quarter ounce balls of furwel faerie finspun angora converts to modern day weight and wool type? Can anyone help me please?
