While searching for a boys sweater pattern on the web I stumbled across the following site. www.redcross.org/museum/exhibits/knits.asp This site has about a dozen vintage patterns 1941-1942. Most do not have photos, a few do.
If you love the old patterns like I do (I have been knitting for almost 50 years) then you will be fascinated by this site. All the patterns are down-loadable free!
