Curvy Month Pattern – Fair-Isle Twin Set, c. late1940s

Isnt this twin set from Marriners 162 so very cute?

I believe its probably very late 1940s, or even early 1950s due to the size and colouring of the booklet. I love the unusual white leaf shapes across the yoke – not to mention gray and red being one of my favourite colour combinations.

Edit – here’s what it looks like knitted up!

The cardigan has the patterned yoke knitted on afterwards, while the jumper is just normal fair-isle.
In four sizes, to fit 34-40 inches.

    Thanks for the pattern, having trouble reading it I suppose it’s because of the printing and a old pattern . I thought it may have had a graph with it wishful thinking on my behalf ? I’ve been knitting for 70years no my mother didn’t teach me we were taught at school in the second grade and I wish they still did in schools here in Australia ?? as it’s good for the brain
