Subversive Femme

Free knitting pattern: Trina cardigan-jacket, c. 1940s

Today’s free vintage knitting pattern comes from Myer Fashion Handknits circa 1940s. It’s for a coat-jumper, which I think is just another term for cardigan!

It has a lovely textured stitch pattern, and that classic 40s shaping.

  • To fit: 32/34″ bust
  • Yarn: fingering weight
  • Needles: UK 12 and 10

    Thank you for sharing! What does “wl fwd” and “l” mean in the beginning of the pattern?

      HI there! wl fwd means yarn over (or YO). Not sure about which I you’re referring to, it may mean literally 1, i.e. I pair of needles = 1 pair of needles
