This one is from 1940. It’s worked in a combination
of rib and moss-stitch with moss-stitch insets at
the fronts, a moss stitch collar, and the bows are
actually the buttons!
The original yarn used was 8 ozs (227g) of Sirdar
3 ply Super Shetland wool, 7 ozs (198g) of main
colour, and 1 oz. (29g) of contrast. Pair each No.
11 (3mm) and No. 9 (3.75mm) needles.
Tension is about 16 sts. and 19 rows to 2 inches
Measurements to fit: 33-35 inch Bust
The needles are old sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help with Old to metric
and USA sizes
The pattern comes as one easy to download
and print PDF
