More exciting websites associated with Little Gem Alpacas


A huge catalogue of many thousands of knitting patterns covering from the 1900's up to the late 1960's.

So huge that we are introducing other websites to cover individual catagories of patterns to make your browsing easier and more fun - see below

Just the baby patterns from The Vintage Knitting Lady. This is a favourite one!
Here you can find patterns from 1900 to 1949.
If you need something special for a WW2 re-enactment party, this is the place to find it.
This carries on the list with just the 1950's. Some of us remember these fashions only too well!
The latest version of our original website, the one you are on right now.
Retro Dolly
  This one is still in the planning stages, but will have doll patterns, actual doll clothes (both original and new), the dolls themselves, and anything related to dolls.
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE LAUNCH (Shouldn't be too long now)
