Poll Results, and a pattern from 1939/1940

Well, the poll results are in!

The most popular decade voted for was the 1940s, followed by the 1950s and 1930s.
The most popular knitted item is jumpers, followed closely by cardigans.

I've had some special requests as well, so I'll do my best to find some patterns for those too.

Well, since the 1940s is so popular - here's Aileen, a jumper-cardigan (looks like a cardigan, but it's actually a jumper/sweater).

This pattern comes from Patons & Baldwins Specialty Knitting Book No.128 - printed at the start of WWII, due to the economy colouring of the booklet.

I just love that stitch pattern.






























To fit a 34 inch bust
Requires fingering weight wool, and 2.75mm and 4mm needles.
