Mod 1963 Fluffy Mohair Sweaters

I normally post the knitting instructions to vintage sweaters I blog about, but these groovy sweaters from the October, 1963 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal didn’t have the instructions in the magazine.  Instructions were available by sending 25 cents to LHJ, but since 49 years have passed, I’m quite certain that the instructions are no longer available!

Anyhoo, I just really like the look of these sweaters.  Most are knit in 100% mohair and are shown in bright jewel-tone colors.  My favorite is the pink turtleneck.  The models’ striped cropped pants and bright ballet flats are especially fab!  Of course, it was the 60s so cigarette holders were de rigueur; along with the perky flip hairdo.

One thing I know for sure is that fluffy sweaters will always remain in style!
