This pattern is for a fitted summer sweater with puffed details at the shoulder of sleeves, ribbed details at the bottom of the sleeves and sweater bodice, and three lovely lines of knitting ties with bow details across the front bodice. This listing is for a PDF digital download for a women's vintage knitting pattern taken from the pattern book 'Woolworths Economy Knit Book Number 19'. The book this pattern is taken from appears to be c. 1940s. This is quite a popular vintage pattern, and I have seen some wonderful colour variations as well as use of ribbon and velvet for the bow detailing.
This pattern fits a 32-34 inch bust.
