I remember being told off because my hankie was not clean when I went to a birthday party in early 1950s - needless to say I always have at least one clean hankie on my person at all times now- yes! the real cotton type with embroidery or lace on!!! This little cardigan is to fit 26-28 inch chest. 6-8 years. Knitted in vintage 3ply so try modern 4ply. If you feel daunted by the fair isle just work one or two of the bands and knit the rest in the back ground shade - allow more of the ground colour if you do this.
