Curvy Month Pattern Nine: Lorna Cardigan, c 1940s

I hope you’ve been enjoying Curvy Month – I’ve really loved sharing some larger sized vintage knitting patterns with you all. The final post is stunner from Stitchcraft, and I’ll pop it up tomorrow.

This second-last pattern comes from Patons Knitting Book No. 176, a really lovely WWII-era booklet featuring jumper and cardigan designs. I really like the Patons booklets – your’re guaranteed to find at least one OS (over sized) pattern per book.

The Lorna cardigan combines an interesting stitch pattern with the classic Forties fit we all love.
Knitted in fingering weight yarn on 3.25mm and 2.75mm needles.
Two sizes, to fit a 39″ bust and 43″ bust.
