This post was from a request. A couple of months ago I asked if any readers had a specific pattern they’d like hunted down and this was one of them, and one which I’d really like to knit! It’s the sweater above on the right. I would have scanned both, but I was in the Rare Books room at the British Library and they scrutinise how much you copy from each source (and as no one else scans knitting patterns, they look at me sceptically when I correctly inform them that it comes under industrial design copyright, which makes it copyright free now). Next time I’ll order for a different room, where the scrutinty is lax (shhh, not saying where in case the staff get into trouble).
This sweater is 37 inches around the bust, but this young lady appears in many, many patterns and usually they are for a smaller bust size than this, which confuses me.
She appears so in so many patterns (I’ve seen her in Weldon’s patterns, as well as in Stich In Time Volumes 1 and 2), that I’m going to name her, so I can tag all the patterns – say hello to Jumper Jill.
Close up of the righthand column to make it clearer.
