Free Knitting Pattern: Smart Striped Jumper from Stitchcraft July-Aug 1948

A By-Request pattern for Sandflies on Ravelry (yep, I do take requests!) who was after this particular pattern from StitchCraft Magazine, July-August 1948.

This cute little cardigan has some great matched stripes going on - I love the way they wrap around the chest and across the upper arms.

The colour combination is pretty fantastic too!

A cute collar matches well with the multitude of buttons down the front - something was very flashy after the war-standards of minimal buttons a few years ago.

To fit: 32-34 inch bust
Yarn: fingering
Needles: 2.75mm and 3.25mm

Really fun, classic sweater! Sometimes I'll see a vintage garment and I can picture my 84 year old maternal grandma having worn it back in the day (she's always had a causal, somewhat menswear inspired, classic look) and this sweater is definitely one of those pieces.
