I really love the tinted colours of this Patons knitting pattern – the mauve and darker purple look really stylish together. Another reason the early Patons and Baldwins are some of my favourites.
I believe this pattern is from around 1939/1940 and I really wanted to share it with you because the neckline is detailed so well. Check out how those cables beautifully flow into the collar – just lovely!
The body is knitted in moss-stitch, with cable detail running up the sleeves and the body of the jumper. Unusually, the jumper calls for 4mm needles with fingering weight yarn, so I’d imagine this would be a light (and fast) knit.
Finished size of 37 inches.
Requires 4mm needles (straight and double points) on fingering weight yarn.
