I was recently lucky enough to get my hands on some early 1940’s Vogue Knitting Books and spotted some plus size knits in one of them.
This little cropped cardigan is from Vogue’s 24th Knitting Book (1943 perhaps?). The front has a diagonal stripe pattern that looks really interesting – simple to knit as well.
I really like the shorter fit on this one too – everyone should be accentuating their waists, not hiding them!
Finished size of 38 inches, knit in fingering or light fingering yarn on 3.25mm and 2.75mm needles.
