Jack-Tar (Sailor) Jumper, from Stitchcraft June 1951

I think 1951 is my favourite year for Stitchcraft jumper design during the 50s - the jumpers are just so interesting to look at!

This cute ribbed jumper features a contrast yoke with an intarsia design of a sailor on the front. I love the styling, but not sure about her hat - what do you think?

To fit a 33-34 inch bust, using fingering weight yarn on 3.25mm and 2.75mm needles. The suggested colourway is wine red and white, with scraps of blue and black for the sailor.
