Free Knitting Pattern - 1940's Coat - Needlework Illustrated

A lovely lady asked whether I'd put this pattern on the blog, so here it is. 

The cover jumper from Needlework Illustrated issue number 164, from 1941.  The pattern gives two size options; one for a 33-34" bust, the other for a 35-36" bust.  This one is worked in cotton, and if you do knit it, I'd love to see how it turns out.

  1. Oooh, thank you, thank you so much! It totally made my day to see this pattern pop up in my Feedly! I'm so excited to try it out, so I'll have to put it high up on the "To Knit List". Thanks again for sharing, and yes, I will totally be putting up photos on Ravelry when I do knit it up. :D ❤
