The 1941 Jumper


I'm very excited to see the 1941 Knitting Pattern I posted early this year knitted up, and it looks great! You can also find it on Ravelry.

It's patterns like this from my vintage magazines that have inspired me to take up knitting, and I've been pestering my sister to teach me how. We've now got as far as picking out what looks like a beginner-friendly pattern - no easy task, since most of the knitting patterns from my 1940s magazines incorporate fancy details; it's surprisingly hard to find a simple, plain pattern (same goes for sewing patterns). So watch this space - and wish me luck!

  1. Good luck...can't wait to see what you make. I'm not the best knitter and I'm certainly lazy about it, but I'd love to make some Forties sweaters.x

  2. That sweater looks fab- I think that's moving to the top of my "to knit" queue. I wish you much luck with knitting. It's easy once you get the hang of it.
