Curvy Month Pattern Three: Silver Dew Sweater c. 1950s

This nifty 1950's number has a lot going for it - plenty of sizes, a cute yoke and collar plus a really interesting texture.

The ribbed waist also helps to keep this a trim fit.































I could see this pattern working really well as a 1940s knit too, in the right colour way. Don't be put off by the thin yarn - the body is knit up quickly on 4mm needles.

Size: 32-41 inches
Needles: 2.75mm and 4mm needles
Yarn: light fingering

Really lovely pattern! I'm definitely digging the solid, pointed collar with such an open design on the body.

ohhh i love it... was searching for it on Ravelry but couldn't find it so i printed it now.. there's probably some negative ease here :-). Does anyone know what size 32/3 and 34/5 means? is that 32/33 and 34/35 but written 'old fashioned'??

well thanks for this pattern...:-)
