Pattern only. This sale does not include any finished articles.
This pattern was published by Patons and Baldwins in Australia, I believe in the late 1940's, however there is no date on the pattern book The title of this book is - Patons Knitting Book, No. 173. Pattern is labelled 'Robin'
The size given in the pattern for the finished cardigan is Length from top of shoulder- 11 inches Width all around at underarm - 18 inches Length of sleeve from under arm - 6 1/2 inches (or length desired) This compares to a modern sizing for a 3 month old baby.
To finish this cardigan you will need 5 small button. Wool required is Paton's baby wool. I have knitted a tension swatch using a modern Patons yarn which matches the tension requirements. This is the second photo. I used Patons, 4 ply acrylic yarn and 3.25 mm needles.
This file is in a PDF format with original pattern pages in 1 file. Please let me know if you have any problems downloading or reading the pattern.
VERY IMPORTANT In order for your work to be the same size as the original I strongly suggest that you check your tension as this is an old pattern and today's wool will knit up differently.
Needles required are 1 pair size 10 needles. My research has found that the current needle sizes are: Size 10 - ( AUS -3.25mm), ( UK -10), (USA -3)

My most frequently asked question relates to 'scratchy' wool. I use high quality wool. This is usually Shepherd merino baby wool. Definitely not a 'scratchy' wool.
