vintage ladies cardigan double knitting wool 1930s

Robin 37L: Great ladies vintage cardigan knitting pattern 1930s. This design has a lovely collar - this style was to reoccur in the 1950s. The crisp cables and low buttoned front are so stylish. The ply is not given, but by the size of needles imperial 9 and 6 (3.75 and 5mm)and the design I would suggest using a thick double knitting or Aran weight in a tension square changing needles to get the correct tension. Strangely enough there is no tension guide or size on this early pattern. I would guess at a medium size - so do a tension square in your chosen wool and change needles until you get the size you want!

This one is knitted in 3ply, so adjust needles and wool if necessary to get size required. To fit bust 33-35 inch bust (4ply on a size larger needles will give you a more generous 36" bust - but work a tension square first as everyone knits at a different tension as do yarns and needles. This is so easy as the width is changed by using bigger needles with the same no of stitches - no increasing or decreasing.

vintage blousette knitting pattern 1940s wartime

Sentinel 152: Blousette: Great vintage ladies blouse knitting pattern 1940s. These blousettes or fronts were very popular to wear with suits in the austerity years during and following the war. You did not have to knit back or sleeves, so saved money and if you kept your jacket on no one was the wiser - no central heating on trains, buses or offices in those days, let alone homes! Length adjustable, no bust size needed as it is only a front! I have an original front like this in my collection of ladies clothing from the first half of the 20th Century knitted in silk. I have more of these patterns I just need to find them - they really are useful and great at reenactment meeting or stage productions

vintage ladies outsize 1920s knitting pattern 40-44 inch bust Silver Jubilee 4: Great vintage ladies jacket knitting pattern early 1920s to fit the larger figure. This is so typical of the era and would fit 40, 42 or 44 inch bust. Changing needle size to get the different sizes. They suggest using cable wool which would have been thicker than average wool of the age. Looking at the diagram and the size needles suggest it might well work in Aran ply, there is no tension instructions, but if you work a tension square using the needles suggested and yarn preferred then you will see the size it will work out to and can adjust accordingly. It is lovely to these really old patterns.
