Welcome to Curvy Month, a whole month devoted to non-standard-sized knitting patterns!
Over the month of August I’ll be posting 10 patterns with bust sizes larger than 36 inches, perfect for the curvy-sized vintage lovers out there.
Today’s Pattern is Sirdar 1741, in bust sizes 34-36-38 inches.
Knitted on fingering weight yarn, using 3.75mm and 2.75mm needles.
Now, you know I don’t normally post 1960’s patterns – but this one looked really familiar…. to Sirdar 1345 (original at Cherry Vintage), also knitted in Majestic.
I’m fairly sure that I’ve seen a 1940’s version of this pattern somewhere around as well.
It really goes to show that the right styling really makes a garment ‘fit’ the decade you’re trying for.
I hope you enjoy this pattern, the next one will be posted in a couple of days.
