1940s vintage wartime fair isle knitting pattern

Bestway 1744: Great collectable vintage fair isle knitting pattern, this one says designed in Paris. Late 1940s, has a little dutch bonnet to match, these were so popular during the 30's and 40's my mother said she had quite a few, they were warm and practical as well as easy to knit. This pattern actually has a chart as well as written instructions, I know some of you prefer them, but it is just as easy to knit from the written words. This long sleeved jumper fits 35"-37" bust, so just a change up to size 10(3.25mm) will give you that bit more room. As this is in vintage 3ply try tension square in modern 4ply and see if this is a better fit. The original pattern states it was knitted in black and yellow, but  how Christmasy would this look in red and white?
