Curvy Month Pattern: Stella, a lady's jumper design (Patons Speciality Knitting No. 117)

I really love the tinted colours of this Patons knitting pattern - the mauve and darker purple look really stylish together. Another reason the early Patons and Baldwins are some of my favourites.

I believe this pattern is from around 1939/1940 and I really wanted to share it with you because the neckline is detailed so well. Check out how those cables beautifully flow into the collar - just lovely!

The body is knitted in moss-stitch, with cable detail running up the sleeves and the body of the jumper. Unusually, the jumper calls for 4mm needles with fingering weight yarn, so I'd imagine this would be a light (and fast) knit.

Finished size of 37 inches.
Requires 4mm needles (straight and double points) on fingering weight yarn.

Beautiful sweater!!! I've always had a soft spot in my heart for cable knits.

This looks lovely! What do we call "finger weight yarn" now? (I'm in the UK.)

Jessica - me too! I rarely knit them though because I'm lazy (eep hehe).

Helena - fingering weight yarn is still fingering weight, i.e. 4ply or sock weight :). Hope that helps xx
