Item details

Moss stitch and ruched stripes make this jumper simply amazing!
Its a lovely example of War-era knitting, with the instructions advising that 'old pulled-back wool will do for the stripes' - Make Do and Mend to win the War!

This PDF pattern is sized to fit a 34-36 inch bust, and comes from Stitchcraft 154 (Australia). The pattern book was terribly damaged, and i've had to do quite a bit of repair to bring the patterns back to life.

Needles required: 3.75mm and 3mm
Yarn required: fingering weight

This listing is for the above PDF pattern, available by Instant Download. I can also email it to you instead if requested.
