    Madeline Weston and her partner opened their shop The Scottish Merchant in Covent Garden in 1970, and for 20 years it was known as "the" place in London for buying beautifully made, authentic garments sourced from all parts of the British Isles. An expert in traditional knitting patterns, Madeline is the author of two previous books: "Country Weekend Knits" and "Country Weekend Socks."
    Rita Taylor has been a keen knitter since childhood, with a particular interest in traditional Scottish knits, especially Fair Isle and fishermen's knits. She now manages the Gansey and the Period Garment Schemes for the UK Knitting & Crochet Guild and is involved with the re-creation of ganseys for the Moray Firth Partnership. She is the author of "Knitting; 200 Questions and Answers "and the designer of many garments in 1930s and 1940s styles for period dramas in both theater and film.

    Here are 20 patterns for a wardrobe of gorgeous knitwear--based on the original styles worn by such starlets as Jayne Mansfield, Bette Davis, and Greta Garbo, and by fashionable leading ladies from Wallis Simpson to Grace Kelly. This collection of must-have garments and accessories offers beautiful, classic patterns for knitting sweaters, cardigans and twinsets, plus sleek wraps and stoles that never go out of style. The patterns have been updated and adapted for use with modern yarns in wool, cotton, silk, and other blends.

      Although the sizes are limited in this book, I would be able to substitute a larger yarn/needle and the numbers would still work perfectly. These are just the kind of lady-like sweaters I love to wear. Bought this book after borrowing it from the library. It is well worth owning if you are a knitter.
