Curvy Month Pattern 8: Elsa, a bow trimmed jumper c. 1930s

I’m so entranced by the neckline on this one – a yoke that turns into a bow! And little bows on the sleeve!

Elsa comes from Patons and Baldwins Speciality Knitting 84, circa mid 1930s. While she’s sized for 38″ bust, the pattern could accommodate larger due to the ribbing.

  • To fit: 34 and 38″ busts
  • Yarn: DK (8ply) weight
  • Needles: 4.5mm

    Oh, this looks so pretty with the bows but I can’t see the pattern. Nothing happens when I click on it—doesn’t get enlarged. Thanks.
