Curvy Month Pattern Two: Novelty Golden Barley Jumper, c. 1950s

‘So new, so different, so pretty! Our simple sky-blue jersey is embroidered with ripe ears of golden barley…’ This sweet little jumper comes from Weldon’s Ladies Journal, and would be a fun novelty knit to pair with pedal pushers!

This jumper is knit first (long or short sleeves) and the barley embroidered on later. On the upside, this would be a really easy design to embroider on any plain jumper for a taste of novelty (if you didn’t want to knit your own).
To fit: 31-33 inch, 33-35 inch and 35-37 inch busts
Needles: 3.25mm and 2.75mm
Yarn: Fingering
As per always, right click on the image and open in a new tab to see full size versions for printing.

    I like the idea that this is a fairly basic knit that you could really embellish in any way you like. I could see embroidering cherries or sparrows on it as well. Thank you for all your lovely patterns. I am slowly working my way through them.

    Fabulously fun, thoroughly chic sweater. My first thought is how utterly perfect this would be for Thanksgiving or any sort of autumn/harvest celebration.
