Here is April’s offering- on the cover a green evening top to wear with pearls, 34-36 inch bust and on the back cover a WTF faux fringing design? It is 33-35 bust and looks like a shark took a bite out of the front. Men’s socks in two colours made on double pointed needles and a men’s a spring sleeveless pullover size 36-38 inch chest. My two favorites are the short sleeved striped “to go with your slacks” (which gives us a clue that by 1947 trousers for ladies were quite acceptable) in size 34-36, and a bobbley short sleeved top with a collar in size 34-36 inch bust. Three weird linen collars, similar to designs seen in earlier Christmas issues and finally three cushion designs in quilting or cross stitch.

I do have a copy of March 1947 and had been scanning them chronologically, but for some reason it doesn’t thrill me. The designs are a bit dull, so I have skipped ahead to April, which has patterns I’d like to knit and a couple of “what were they thinking?” items. Everything you’d want from an old knitting magazine!

  1. Interesting. But you forgot page 16, which is the last of the instructions for the StitchCraft 1947 cover cardigan! So disappointing. I like the fitted tailored look with the gathered sleeve cups.
