This listing is for a PDF digital download for a vintage knitting pattern taken from the pattern book 'Sun-Glo Summer Knitteds Series 44'. The book this pattern is taken from appears to be c. 1940s-1950s, and the pattern is for a short sleeved summer sweater with ribbed body and sleeve cuffs, press studs for back neck closure, and a diamond/bobble lace stitch which is absolutely gorgeous. This one makes me think so much of contemporary brands like Princess Highway, and it's absolutely next on my personal to-do list.

The size is for 32/34 inch bust but also includes instructions for modifying to a 36 inch bust by sizing needles up to UK 9/3.75mm needles instead of UK 10/3.25mm needles.

Materials required:
- 5/6 skeins 'Sun-glo' Shrinkproof or Sunbeam 2 ply vintage fingering weight yarn, which can be substituted with modern materials to achieve specified gauge of 7 stitches x 9 rows for 1 x 1 inches.
- Knitting needles size UK 10/3.25mm
- Knitting needles size UK 14/2mm
- Press studs
