A Classic Short-Sleeved Fitted Jumper Knitting Pattern dating from 1950s
• The original pattern has become yellowed with age and some characters are smudged, so I have reformatted the text.
• All measurements are in inches and you may wish to obtain an inch ruler or tape measure in order to be accurate.
• An ounce of wool weighs approximately 25g, 1 yard = 36 inches.
• Old UK size 10 needles are equivalent to 3.25mm today, size 11 is equivalent to 3 mm; (US sizes 3 and 2 respectively). 2ply yarn of roughly the correct width can be purchased from Shetland (UK) wool companies, although this just might be a little too thick! Alternatively, try a four-ply sock yarn which will also be washable - any regular 4-ply fingering should be suitable. To obtain the correct tension with other modern yarns try going up or down one size of needles or try using modern yarns which recommend the use of 3.25 mm (US size 3 )needles and fit the tension. You may need more yarn than the pattern requires.
• The lacy panels are divided by long cables. The shaping is superb, very detailed and very feminine, belonging to an age when style and deportment were everything!
• You may decide it is unnecessary with many cast-on methods to knit into the back of the stitches.
• I have retained the style of knitting grammar of the day, lots of full stops and capital letters.
