Subversive Femme

Noontide jumper-cardigan, from Style Volume 3 circa 1930s

I’m ever so slowly increasing my collection of Paton’s Style booklets (only missing a couple now), and when I saw this pattern in my new Volume 3, I knew I had to share it with you!

Puffed sleeves, a decorative yoke, cute collar and even mock darts, on my.

It has so many great details, except, it’s a 32 inch bust size – ouch! Well, maybe some of you petite and talented knitters will make it up – it should be a quick knit in Totem 12-ply

To fit: 32 inch bust. Knitted on 5.5mm needles, on Bulky (12ply) weight yarn.

    Oh my this is such a great pattern. I'm so sad to see that it's for 32' bust. Damn these 38's, lol. I am especially excited to see any vintage pattern that is NOT on 4-ply yarn. I would definitely knit more true vintage patterns if they weren't in such small weight yarn. I sure wish I was better at math so I could resize this one. Thank you for sharing, it is a great style inspiration

    It is a verrrrrry long time since I had a 32 inch bust. That pattern is gorgeous though.

    Thank you for posting this pattern! I am obsessed with patterns from the 30’s with sleeves knitted from the top down. You don’t see them very often

    I’m trying to knit the noontide pattern but I’m wondering I’d a page is missing… I see that it ends on the first page with the 9thbrow and the next page is the 23rd row. Did I moss printing a page?
    Thank you for this pattern.

      HI there Lisa, because you repeated the 8th and 9th rows 6 times, it makes the next row the 23rd if that makes sense
