We’ve looked at crazy vintage knitting patterns before, but did you ever wonder what happens to all those lovingly hand knit items when the recipients realize that a yellow corn vest just isn’t practical anymore? Well, here’s a little feature devoted to the knits of our past; gone but not forgotten at the local thrift shop.
Our first feature is this attention getting yellow and brown vest with a clever intarsia corn pattern -the perfect accessory for all your fall festivities. Knit in 100% acrylic with a simple tie front and garter stitch border, I’d estimate it’s vintage as mid 70s.

Many thanks to my dear husband for modeling this knitting treasure.
