Free Vintage Knitting Pattern: Boys Sweater for the young scientist

This one is a creased and well loved charity shop 50p rescue. I haven’t got any children and am very happy mothering my cats, but I can’t stop buying kids patterns, especially if they involve wildly inappropriate in the 21st century things, like hammers and this time it’s chemistry! I like the bit of colourwork along the bottom. For boys and girls 24, 26 or 28 inch chest. And look at the text – ” Forward- looking 4 to 9 year olds are demanding colour at the waist and cuffs of their v-neck raglan sweaters in double knitting.” That’s a suspiciously specific demand. (I suspect someone from the wool shop has been giving out sweets, or possibly chemistry sets in return for kids badgering their Mum’s for specific raglan v-necks).
