This full-color, unaltered scan of an original 1938 American Thread Company leaflet contains two rather perky sweater patterns designed by Cecilia Vanek. The “Fashions: Finds of the Season in Knitwear” sweaters are knit using worsted-weight yarn and No. 6 and 10 knitting needles; instructions are given for 1950s women sizes 14 through 16.
The Barrel Sweater No. 386 is a cap-sleeved sweater knitted in two pieces. With ribbed neckline, cuffs and waistband, the sweater is trimmed with embroidered roses. Pattern includes instructions for a matching crocheted hat.
The Jiffy Sweater No. 387 is a short-sleeved sweater knitted in a striped texture and finished with ribbed collar, sleeve bands and waistband. The collar is tied with a crocheted tie with pom-pom ends.
