Why not knit your Swagger? Free pattern c. 1930s

Why not indeed?

I really adore this Swagger Coat pattern, its from the Woman’s Journal 11th Book of Knitting (early 1930s) and the styling is amazing!
“Extremely smart, and really simple to knit is this short swagger coat, beautifully shaped with the fashionable back swing.”

I’d have no issues rocking the above outfit, it’s such a wearable 1930’s ensemble.
The pattern is sized for a 34-36 inch bust, but it’s pretty free-size and would probably do up to a 40-42 easily.

Requires worsted/10 ply weight yarn  on 5mm needles.

    Love it!!! I'd totally rock this stylish 30s ensemble, too. I like that it looks as though it would better for those of us with curves than many early to mid-30s looks generally do.
