Brace your eyeballs for these vintage knitting patterns, modelled by the likes of Joanna Lumley.

We don’t know how, we don’t know why. But in the latter half of the 20th century, Joanna Lumley, Richard Briers and a bunch of other likely British TV stars did the world a highly questionable favour and modelled for a knitting pattern book. The theme of the designs is either “unbridled awesomeness” or “unbridled insanity” – or both! We’ve taken the liberty of cherry-picking some of our favourites for your viewing pleasure, but if you’d like to see them all, head here – some good citizen has lovingly scanned and uploaded every single photo from the publication. Ahh, internet, you’ve done it again.
