Vintage 40s Leopard Print Hat & Gloves Knitting Pattern

I adore – ADORE – leopard print!  Especially vintage leopard print anything.  It is one pattern that stands the test of time, and always manages to look classic and yet very modern.  It’s always fun to use leopard print as an accessory – it will add pop and pizazz to even the most mundane outfit.

For your knitting delight, here is an incredibly FABULOUS vintage 1940s knitting pattern for a Leopard Pattern Hat and Gloves.  I would love to see evidence of anyone making this, because it most certainly won’t be me (my knitting skills are basic, at best).  But I would certainly love to wear this!

Ooops!  Forgot to include this.  Here’s the pattern for the palms of gloves:  Remember to send me pics if you make this (or any other pattern)!  I will feature it on my blog. 🙂

    Do you have a copy of page seven? It contains the instructions for the palms of the gloves. I mean I can make that up but it would be easier. I will send pictures once I am done but it will not be umtil after Christmas. Cristina

    Hi Cristina,
    I just added the instructions for the palms of the gloves on my blog post. Looking forward to seeing pics of the finished product! I will feature any of the patterns that are made up on my blog.

    Thank you for the very fast response. 🙂 I will gladly send you pics, but don’t expect them until about end of January. Mrs. Santa has some projects she needs to finish first. After that I am launching into this one. Cristina

    Got it done. Used variegated brown yarn for the spots. That really made it fun. Tried to up load picture but it did not work. Cristina

    I am starting the gloves, but I do not understand the 12 stitches. What do you do with them? In the pattern they say it is inthe illustration but I do not see it.
    Can you help me?

    I hope to have a go soon. I wear 1930’s and I see animal prints were huge in the 30’s.

    I have started them and they are easier than I expected considering I’ve only done fair isle twice before. I expect to finish before 19 July.

    Finished in time for the Art Deco festival last weekend. Now to find your email address as the link above is broken.

    That is so cool that you made the gloves, Denise. My email link was broken, but now it is fixed. Please feel free to send me the photos!
