Over all my visits to the British Library I’ve scanned or photographed a lot of Stitchcraft from covers. I posted here all those from 1932 to 1933. Here are covers from 1934 and 1935.
Getting a New Slant On Things – this diagonally-striped jumper is crocheted in a simple pattern. It’s finished measurements are 35 inches across the bust, so it’s for a 33-35 inch bust depending on how tight you’d like it.
This one is a little bit higgledy-piggledy, as it’s a variety of pictures I took on my phone, rather than a proper scan. I wasn’t going to let an out of order scanner stop me! It’s Jumper Jill, my favourite model in Stitchcraft magazine in either 1932 or 1933.
This is was published in 1934. (I think my friend Theodora might have done the actual scanning, as we visited the British Library together – I recommend her blog for more than just free knitting patterns, she is also a designer and vintage knitwear model and an eloquent writer).
More after the jump.

I’m fairly sure this is from a 1935 issue of Weldon’s Ladies Journal. It was scanned way way back in October 2015, so my memory is hazy and my notes leave a lot to be desired. The pattern is nice though. For a bust between 33-35 inches. It doesn’t say what size of yarn to use.
This is made up in rust, brown, yellow, green, blue and natural 3 ply. It’s slightly more complicated than the last fair isle pullover I posted, having both more colours and two charts to follow. Chest 38 inch.
