Another Happy Customer - 1946 jumper

Very quick post.

I have finished my most recent jumper, this time from a 1946 Stitchcraft pattern.  It was knitted in a shade called cardinal from the Stylecraft 4 ply range.  It's quite a fiddly pattern, the photograph doesn't really show the design very clearly but there is a zig zag pattern running up each of the sections with little staggered bobbles (my description isn't much better than the picture but I'm sure you get the gist).

Here it is displayed on my dummy in sunless skies which make the colour look darker than it really is.

The jumper was Norway bound and the new owner, Cat, kindly sent me a couple of photographs of her wearing it.  These next photographs show the true colour!

Thank you Cat for sharing these shots, I think you look wonderful :o) 

Next on my needles will be some Stylecraft pale rose for a little cardigan I've got on order ;o)


  1. Gorgeous jumper, looks quite a complicated pattern.

  2. Oh, that is gorgeous! What a pretty shade of red. I want to knit a 40's sweater:-)

  3. Oh that jumper is just fabulous and Cat looks perfect in it!!

  4. Absolutely lovely!! I love 40's sweaters in red.

  5. Love it, it looks wonderful, another stunning creation!

  6. That is lovely! How long does it normally take you to make these? I just finished a 1941 pattern myself- fun!

    1. Hi Rachel,
      If I concentrated on just the one jumper, then it would take about 4 weeks but because I do other crafting alongside the knitting, it's more like 7-8 weeks. Would love to see a photograph of the jumper you have knitted.
      Best wishes

  7. This jumper is absolutely gorgeous, I love the pattern and the colour of it! XxxX

  8. Very, very lovely! Cat looks stunning :) x

  9. That looks so lovely on her! Well done is turned out wonderful! I'm just teaching myself to knit.
