This is a book which was given to me by my Granny about 20 years ago. I wrote to P & B and they dated the book 1938. There are patterns for babies, children and adults - underwear and outerwear!! There is also lots of instructions for stitches in K & C. I keep this book tucked away safely because the cover is a bit delicate - the inside pages are much more durable and are unharmed by the use which it received. I would say that the patterns were done so many times that the bookwas not needed every time!!!
