Curvy Month Pattern Four: An Interesting Grey Woollen, c. 1940s

I had to add interesting to this pattern description – because it is! This lovely pattern comes from ‘Summer Knitting’, circa early 1940s.

Who doesn’t love those full 1940’s sleeve heads and the easy (yet attractive) stripe pattern in garter stitch?
This one’s already in my queue – and I reckon it would smashing with the garter stripes knitted in a contrasting colour.

To fit: 34 and 38 inch busts.
Yarn: Fingering weight
Needles: 3.75mm and 2.75mm

    So classic and pretty! This is something I could instantly see my 84 year old grandma sporting back when she was a teenager. She's always had an understated sort of style with a penchant for unfussy, classic pieces like this great sweater.
