1940s Short Sleeve Cardigan PDF Knitting Pattern


100 in stock


Cardigan Blouse with large covered crochet
buttons, a v-neck and short sleeves, with
instructions to add shoulder pads if wanted.

Knitted in Fleisher’s Krinky crepe which I can
find no reference to at all (or the other suggested
yarns). The needle size is US 2 -(2.75mm) and the
hook to finish is also size 2 US – (2.5mm). Going on
needle size and tension the yarn was probably a
3/4-ply. But please check yourself as I can’t
guarantee it is correct.

The gauge for tension is:
7 sts. = 1 inch blocked – 11 rows = 1 inch – Pattern
is a multiple of 6

The needles are US sizes, but I have included a
conversion chart to help. The yarn is a crinkle
type yarn. There is also a Helpful hints page with
instructions and tips on how to work larger
sizes etc.

Size is US 16 [size 34] 35 ins Bust.

The pattern comes as one easy to download
and print PDF
