Apologies for the silence up here – I’ve been feeling really flat at the moment and am finding it hard to muster the energy to blog, knit or sew.
While I’m busy trying to get some mojo back, I thought I’d share this lovely pattern with you. The pleated box-head sleeves and arrowhead lace look really smart – not to mention the 11 buttons down the front!
It’s from Patons and Baldwins ‘Style’, Volume 5 – and probably dates to 1939. No mention of the war and the format is large with good quality paper.
Finished bust size of 34 inches, knitted with fingering weight yarn on 4mm and 2.75mm needles.
