Curvy Month Pattern 8: Prelude yoked jumper, c. 1930s-1940s

Patons and Baldwins always added an out-size pattern to their knitting booklets - and it's an adventure trying to find it amongst all their designs.

I really like this simple design (from Style Vol. 3, late 1930s to early 1940s) - the contrast yoke lends itself to a lot of colour variations. Being knit in rib it's both easy to make, and forgiving  for a slightly larger bust size.

To fit: 34 and 38 inch busts
Yarn: Fingering weight
Needles: 3.25mm and 2.75mm

All these gorgeous short sleeved jumper patterns are reminding that spring will be here soon! I think I may need one or two of these knitted up by then.

What a classic, fun pattern. My first thought is how it reminded me of certain 30s and 40s ski wear knits I've seen in vintage photos over the years. I suspect this sweater would indeed be great for that very purpose.
