Subversive Femme

A lace paneled cardigan, c. 1950s (Twinprufe Spring Lace Knitting Book 167)

Even though it’s starting to heat up down here in the Southern Hemisphere, it doesnt mean you have to stop knitting.

At least, it didn’t stop them 50 years ago~!
Twinprufe put out a series of Spring Knits, and this little cardigan looks adorable – even if it’s knitted in a not-so-Spring-friendly wool.
At least it’s a light fingering weight.

The cardigan has some great lace panels down the body and sleeve, plus the button band and sleeves are hemmed – no stretching or ribbing to worry about.

To fit: 32-34-36 inch busts
Yarn: Light Fingering weight (3ply)
Needles: 2.75mm and 2mm (ouch)

    The wee collar is such a sweet, fun touch. It's one of those subtle notes that really defines a clear cut 50s look in general for me, that largely fell out of fashion in the decades that would follow.
