Case in point - we were watching Miss Marple: The Blue Geranium the other night and Jakk mentioned how much she loved the vest George Pritchard was wearing.
I had a flick through some old Stitchcraft Magazines, and viola, The Diamond Pullover.
(The Blue Geranium was written in 1932-1933, and this pattern is from Stitchcraft November 1935 - pretty close).
The pattern also recommends a colourway of bottle green and beige! The instructions come in both written and charted, and I hope you enjoy it.
To fit: 36-38 inch chest
Needles: 2.75mm and 3.75mm
