Subversive Femme
1930s free knitting pattern sailor

A Cruising Coat, from Woman’s Journal 2nd Book of Knitting (c 1930s)

I love the 1930’s obsession with crusing, beaches and boating. If you went by the images in knitting books it was all anybody was doing!

I love the outfit on the illustrated model, that neck scarf is perfection.

To fit a 30-32 inch bust, knitted on heavy fingering weight yarn using 4mm and 2.75mm needles.
