Description

This pattern is for simple but stylish sweaters for young teens. Plainly knitted, with ribbed neckline, cuffs and hem, the sweaters can be made with either a V or round neck. The garments look very expensive, but you can make them at home for a fraction of that valuation.

This is a genuine paper pattern from the 1980's. It is not a PDF.

The pattern is sized for a 56-76 cm (22-30 inch) bust.

Old designs and ideas are making a comeback these days and many retro patterns are still fashionable, just like this one. As a 21st Century twist, I might lengthen the body by a few more inches, but that's all I think I would change.

I do not carry wool in my shop, neither do I have any connections to anyone who could provide the wool. This pattern is over 30 years old but, like any pattern (old or new) you can choose your own wools to use, just be sure to check the tension advised in the pattern. If you're unsure, take the pattern to a yarn shop, or haberdashery shop and ask their advice - they will be able to help you.

Have fun with this pattern and I would be happy to see the result of all your hard work. Please send me a picture or post one on Facebook or Twitter.

Inspiration

My mother and I have amassed knitting patterns, sewing patterns and vintage buttons into quite the impressive collection. Dozens of knitting patterns, hundreds of sewing patterns and thousands of buttons have all been sorted, cateqorised and filed and are now available to you. It’s a daunting task, to get them listed here, but they need new homes. I hope you enjoy the selections.

If you are interested in this option, please message me before purchase. I will create a listing just for you - using the Economy rate and will let you know the listing is ready for your purchase commitment. Thank you ** ***All postage rates quoted are for straight posting. If you require insurance to be added to your postage, please message me before purchase.
