Schiaparelli had a fantastic influence on knitwear during the 1930s – and this design is very in her ‘pour le Sport’ taste with it’s sporty aesthetic and faux military styling.
(This free knitting pattern is from the Woman’s Journal 11th Book of Knitting and Crochet, early 1930s).
I really love all the little details, and the matching dark buttons and belt are a nice touch.
Isn’t the little fashion illustration divine?
The pattern calls for Patons ‘Sea-Urchin’ which I have never hear of before – based on the tension, I would say it’s a DK-weight yarn. Sounds intriguing!
To fit a 36-38 inch bust, and requires 3mm and 4mm needles.
