Subversive Femme

Curvy Month Pattern 4: High Light Cardigan, c. 1940s

This beauty has more than meets the eye – knitted with opens titches allowing you to thread contrast yarn in to make stripes!

The pattern comes from ‘Knitwear Fashions’, a New Idea Publication circa late 1940s.
Actually, this pattern booklet has a couple of cute curvy sized designs so I’m going to share another from it in my next post.

The cardigan is front is buttoning, has military shoulders and folded over cuffs. The contrast is bulky yarn threaded through the open stitches.

To Fit: 38″ bust
Yarn: Sport weight, with bulky for contrast
Needles: 3.25mm and 2.25mm

    Such a great, classic style. I'd wear this all year 'round, no questions asked. šŸ™‚
