Curvy Month Pattern 9: in Panelled Lace Effect, c. 1947

I try really hard to choose Curvy Month patterns that I think are wearable, interesting and flattering – and today’s pattern is all of those things.

In fact, I’m adding this to my Ravelry queue right now :D. The jumper pattern has all the right things we love about the 1940s – strong shoulders, fitted silhouette and just enough lace to keep it interesting (and yarn saving).

Just a quick note about this pattern – due to it’s vague instructions I would caution new knitters. The gauge isnt provided (I’m guessing 16.3 stitches to 4 inches over pattern) and it can be a bit vague in places.

When I eventually knit this up, I’ll come back and edit this page with updated info to help you out.

  • To fit: 40-42 inch chest
  • Yarn: Light fingering (however fingering will work fine)
  • Needles: UK 10 and 12, metric 3.25mm and 2.75mm
  • Published in: The Australian Women’s Weekly Knitting Book for Children and Adults, 1947
