Free Vintage Knitting Pattern: 30s Ladies Jumper with Bobbles

Bobble Stitch is something I’ve never tried, but for this pattern I am very tempted. It’s treasure I scanned at the British Library today, having looked through the Library Catalogue at home and found an item called Stitchcraft Leaflets. I was expecting something like the For The Junior Miss booklet. Instead I found individual patterns numbered 1 to 233. The first 1 to 120 are beautifully bound into a hardback book, which makes them tricky to scan. The rest were in six large manila envelopes. They were bought by The British Museum (forerunner to The British Library) between 1937 and 1939. Quite a lot of them were for cushions, or children’s things. I’ve picked my favourites to bring to the blog over the next two weeks. I recognised a couple from Stitchcraft magazine issues, so I think these are recycled.

It’s a marvellously realistic modern size 34-36 inch bust and is 4 ply. Let me know if it’s unreadable – I had to scan it as a pdf at the library and at home did a printscreen and edit in Paint to make it into a jpeg (my wonderful Mr SunnyStitcher is in New Zealand and is usually in charge of converting things at work, where he has all the software).
