Knit it for Ski-ing Jumper
Woman's Journal 11th Book of Knitting and Crochet
36-38" Bust / DK weigh Yarn / 3mm & 4mm needles

'The pattern calls for Patons 'Sea-Urchin' which I have never hear of before - based on the tension, I would say it's a DK-weight yarn. Sounds intriguing!'

1930's Knitting - A Simple Jumper

A Simple Jumper
December 1935 Edition of Good Needlework34-36" Bust

Knitted in a simple stripe design with smart lines, this is great for a beginner, as it is entirely worked in knit and pearl stitches. The original is for a 35" bust, but because the pattern repeat is only over 6 stitches, its an easy one to size up.
