A Vintage Knitting Pattern for a Ladies' Jacket - described originally in a British magazine in 1959 with "Follow The Fashion Trend in a Magnificent Husky-Knit".
This jacket knitted in DK double-knitting wool with a neck-hugging collar can be made in three sizes. Needles used are old UK sizes No. 10 and No. 9 needles (3.25 mm and 3.75 mm); with 21 ounces (600 g) of Double Knitting Wool for the 34-inch (86 cm) bust size, 22 ounces (625 g) for the 36-inch (91.5 cm) size and 24 ounces (680 g) for the 38-inch (96.5 cm) size. The pattern uses traditional stitches of twisted rib and "print o' the hoof" cable panels.
The instructions are given for the 34-inch (86 cm) bust size, where they vary, for the 36-inch (91.5 cm) size work the figures within the first brackets or for the 38-inch (96.5 cm) size work the figures within the second brackets.
This pattern is well designed and intricately patterned, a lovely specimen of the era when hand-knitting was in its zenith. The twisted cable is one I have not often met before and it is very attractive.
The original pattern has been scanned and carefully edited from the original which is now faded and difficult to read. I have included full detail of both the original 'inch' measurements and their centimetre equivalents throughout the pattern.
This pattern will suit an intermediate knitter able to follow a detailed pattern and able to knit cables.
