Knitting nostalgia: Knitwear 1920 - 1950, Today's styles from yesterday's designs.
That has got to be the longest title of a book that I have ever bought for 2.50 British pounds at a little used bookstore in Warwick, England. Patterns fitted to inches and centimeters with a small, medium and large = 34inch bust, 36inch and 38 inch bust = size 4, 6 and 8 American or 8, 10, 12 UK or 38, 40, 42 Franch system. Sometimes there is also a 40inch bust pattern added.
