Subversive Femme

Out-Door Charm, Ladies Cardigan – c. 1940s

I love everything about this little cardigan! (except maybe the small 32-34 bust sizing). From Economy Knits 5, early late 30s/early 40s.

Cute collar, puff sleeves, large celluloid buttons and the model has great hair. What a combination!

The Economy Knit Books were published from the mid-thirties specially for the Woolworths stores. The post-war ones didnt mention a ‘brand’ of yarn which really does prove fingering is fingering is fingering.

I hope you like it!

    OMG! I love this one soooo hard! I find button front blouses look so much better on a larger bust, as the eye follows the buttons down or up to the eye. I think I'm going to frog the blouse I just started so I can knit this one instead.
