Subversive Femme

A Gay Cardigan, c.1939

Well, I know you’re all aware of my love of anything described as ‘gay’ – so here’s a lovely gay cardigan from the Bucilla Booklet “Handknits are High Fashion!”, printed 1939.

I’ve also included instructions for eight different kinds of knitted shoulder pads, just for enjoyments sake.
