The cruising holiday became a popular institution
in the early 1930’s, so it became important to
have the right clothes. Woollies were the thing
and so lots of nautical and military styles emerged.
This one is more military in styling with it’s
cleverly worked vertical rib of 2 rows knit and
2 rows purl, chrome buttons and finished with
the fashionable shoulder tabs and a cravat
collar that has pointed ends.
The original yarn used for the Coat was 9 ozs.
(approx 256g) of Ramada 3 ply, 8 in red and
1 in beige, on No. 9(3.75m) needles. The Beret
was 2 ozs of red on No. 12 (2.75mm) and No. 9
TENSION: Jacket 6 sts. and 9 rows to one inch
Beret 6 sts. and 10 rows to one inch
The needles are old U.K sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help with metric and US sizes
The pattern comes as one easy to download and
Digital reproduction – My Vintage Wish 2020.
