Free Vintage Crochet Pattern: This Attractive Affair from Stitchcraft August 1936

This one may look familiar if you follow me on Instagram. I’ve knitted a similar jumper which was reprinted in A Stitch In Time Volume 2, but originally came from this magazine. This is the crochet version. It’s a 32 to 34 inch bust, designed for a 2 ply cotton. I made mine from Rowan Mercised Cotton, which is now discontinued. It wasn’t exactly the right yarn, as it came out quite a lot longer than intended. Since then the author of A Stitch In Time has released her own cotton yarn called Coquette. Incidentally I haven’t been paid for the plug, but I have met Susan Crawford once and she’s a very nice person.

  1. What a great pattern. The changing of the stripes gives it such visual appeal and the collar … well, marvelous. Although long, you still did a great job duplicating.
