Since this is my first post of the new year, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I thought I’d start out 2013 with a great knitting pattern. This beauty is from 1954, and is a really splendid short bolero cardigan pattern. Knit with jumbo knitting needles, I love the cuffed 3/4th sleeves and pointed shawl collar. Sweet!
This is vintage sizing, so size 12 correlates to a 34″ bust. Size 14 is a 36″ bust. Size 16 is a 38″ bust. Happy Knitting!
Thank you so much for posting this pattern!
I have a couple of questions about it.
I’m working on some knitting research project and I need to compare the relationships between armhole depth and sleeve cap height in vintage and contemporary patterns. I intend to publish what I find out in a knitting magazine. So, can I use this pattern in publishing my results? Do you have any knowledge about copy right situation with this pattern?
I would really appreciate any additional information.
Very nice, ready to start Monday.
Have downloaded my pattern, brought my wool, an Aron, but what size UK
needles do I need.
Many thanks , Helen
