Subversive Femme

Curvy Month Seven: Regal Jumper, c. 1940s

I have a hunch that this would be a really fun knit – the bell texture stitch looks really interesting.
This pattern comes from Twin-Prufe, but I can’t remember which one sorry!

The button closure on the neck is super sweet too.
This jumper has the options for long and short sleeves.

To fit: 38-40 in bust
Yarn: Fingering weight
Needles: 3.25mm and 2.75mm

    Love that pattern of lace stripes! I'm so tempted to add this to my ever-growing 'to knit list. Why isn't there enough time knit all of the things?

    Very pretty pattern. I could see this sweater working well as a layering piece in the colder months, especially under a blazer or suit jacket.
