Free Knitting Magazine from mid-60s with 8 patterns

This is a bumper post of a whole booklet of patterns. It might have been from the UK newspaper The Mirror, but I’m not sure. Has anyone heard of the Women’s Mirror? I’m sorry about the text that runs across pages 8 and 9. If you view them side by side its just legible. From the hair I’m guessing it is from the mid-sixties.

Each pattern is in a range of sizes. Sunny Honeycomb cardigan on the front cover is 32 – 40 inch bust. The Chunky Check is 34-38. The men’s Leisure Look is 38-40. Four Fabulous styles from one pattern is 36-38. Cuddle Coat is 34-40. Saddle Shoulder Sweater for men is 38-44. The unusual stitch Cross Knit Cutie is 34-40. Peppermint and Purple is 32-38.

Free Vintage Knitting Pattern: Sideways Knit Short Sleeved Jumper That is Just Super!

Free Vintage Kntting Pattern SummeryOMG Isn’t this fabulous! and it’s knitted sideways with multi-coloured stripes. It’s also wearable in Spring and Summer as it has short sleeves (and here in the UK it’s going to be the hottest I’ve ever known it tomorrow at 33 degrees C, so obviously thick winter sweaters aren’t on my mind at the moment).  It is green, fawn, rust, yellow and brown and is for a 33-35 inch bust. I’ve spotted that a couple of the other Stitchcraft Leaflets I have scanned were originally featured in the monthly Stitchcraft Magazine, so here it is as the cover photo.

Here are the pdfs (which are clearer and zoomable compared to the pictures) Page 1   and   Page 2 and 3
