I'm am currently obsessed with vintage knitting patterns. And while I have searched around the web for some great ones, they're just not coming up. So what patterns/sites is everyone else hoarding? Please share! Anything is appreciated!

Hi Sarah, (carmabelle1191)
Had seen your finished objects.
The socks you knitted on needles#1 are awesome.
The twisted scarf,hat and arm-warmers are cool!
I too like to browse vintage patterns.
Apart from the links you mentioned above, here are few more:

Funny you mention this... :teehee: A few weeks back I put up for swap a CD that I had purchased with nothing but vintage (1940's 50's and 60') patterns. The CD also has crochet patterns!!!!!!! I didn't get any responds......At the time I wanted to start a "sock yarn stash"!!!! Let me know if you are interested in it :hug:

Nope it's convenient :teehee: But I got your point :cheering: I loaded it up (CD) and it's all baby/toddler stuff (knit) the rest is misc (dollies, tablecloths stuff like that, in crochet) Are you interested in just baby stuff to knit :shrug: If so, in return (swap) I am lookin for nice fingering (sock) yarn or maybe a knitpicks gift certificate? I paid around $25.00 bucks for it (CD) and it's mint condition!!! PM me if your are interested!!!!! :hug:

I have a knitting site (still need to type a bunch of patterns up, woops!), and ivarose.com is a great site too! From ivarose.com you get a spiral-bound booklet of patterns. I have two books. :D

OMG! I love vintage knitting and crochet patterns! I spend a whole week not too long ago staying up very early in the morning looking up all that I could. Dewdrop beat me to most of the links, but I have a few to add

http://knitting-and.com/knitting/allpatterns.htm She has some vintage patterns here, mostly doilies.

http://ivarose.com/products - this is a store, but the products are reasonably priced

http://www.vintageous.com/knit.htm

http://www.costumes.org/history/100pages/KNITWEAR.HTM

http://www.geocities.com/vintageconnection/VintageConnection--VictorianKnittingCONTENTS.html

http://www.illuminated-books.com/ - old books online

http://www.retroholic.com/crafts/vintage-knitting.html

http://www.grkp.com/

http://hardrockzombie.livejournal.com/50062.html

http://vintagekal.kitchenerbitch.com/links-to-vintage-patterns/

http://www.glamarama.net/knitting/

There's another one somewhere. I have to find it though, I didn't save the links, I just saved patterns hehe.

ETA: found one! They are translations of old doily patterns from Europe, I believe. I usually don't like doilies, but there's some cool ones out there.

I got some great vintage patterns from some magazines at a knitting swap.
They are from Germany, but all in English. I am goo-goo for vintage.

I'm planning on scanning them, or retyping them. If you're not in a rush, I'll be happy to share them with you.

Are you looking for anything in particular? I have a bunch of children's patterns and some men's stuff too.
