Subversive Femme

Snow Train, Monarch Yarns circa. 1942

Today’s free vintage knitting pattern comes frm a Monarch Yarns Booklet – but I can’t remember the name, apologies. Its from 1942 and is for a lovely ski-set.

I WISH it got this cold in Australia – imagine wearing a little fair-isle head band to keep your ears warm?
I do think you’d get sweat band hair very quickly though.

This pattern is for all you see here – knitted cardigan (32-34-36 inch busts), head band, scarf and matching mittens.

    Hi, have just read this through and am wondering if you have the full booklet as it refers to page 12 for how to knit the thumbs and gussets on the mitts?
    The outfit would be great for one of the vintage car days that are held in the Uk.

    This pattern also appears to be reprinted in a book from Pattons – https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/snow-train
