Vintage Bolero and Cardigan Patterns

The other day I was helping my mother price antiques, and I came across this lovely knitting booklet from the 1930/40s, which had the most lolita-looking boleros and cardigans in it! I always wondered where brands like Innocent World and Emily Temple Cute got the ideas for their designs from, and these are very close!

What I'd also like to know is if there are any people here who knit who would be able to use these patterns? Here is a sample of the first page of the instructions. I know nothing about knitting so I don't know if the way they write instructions has changed in 70 years or not...
