1940’s Diagonal Striped Swimsuit Knitting Pattern – PDF Instant Download


94 in stock


Don’t be afraid of going in the water in this swimsuit.
The two-colour diagonals sloping sideways make a firm
fabric that will not stretch. Cords at the neck and waist,
plus tight crochet all round the sides and back, help to
keep the shape.

The original yarn used was Patons Beehive fingering
3 ply, 5oz Blue 3oz white. No. 11 and 12 (old UK) needles
and a medium crochet hook.

TENSION: 9 sts. to 1 inch

Will fit up to a 33-35 Bust

The needles are old sizes so I have included a
conversion chart for reference to modern sizes.

The pattern comes as 1 easy to download and print PDF
