Inspired by traditional knits, designers Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn apply their own contemporary spin to the 20 patterns here, from classic techniques like Fair Isle interpreted in forward-looking color combinations to funky cable sweaters for weekend living. Divided into three sections—Vintage Feminine, Rustic Weekend, and Winter Harbor—the book features pieces with tailored lines and also easy-to-wear styles, as well as quick accessory projects.

"Each design has roots in a vintage style or technique, and then is given a modern twist. Each piece is thus very thoughtful, and it's interesting to read the history behind each one."—Knitbot.com

"One major pitfall of many vintage-style knitting books is that the garments and accessories make wearers look like they're going to a retro costume party. Kelley and Osborn, co-owners of the yarn company Kelbourne Woolens, avoid this by taking aspects of vintage style—classic tailoring, delicate details, and feminine touches—and incorporating them into garments and accessories that look contemporary.... A classic, accessible collection."—Library Journal
