This piece has been hand knitted from an original 1940s wartime knitting pattern.
Charming stripes of mint, navy, cream and lavender on a base of pink, it has been knitted in Stylecraft 4ply Life which is a 25% wool 75% acrylic and is a slightly fluffy yarn which is wonderfully soft to the touch. A pretty stitch design giving lovely texture to the knit, it fastens on the left shoulder with faceted plastic buttons and has a neat little bow at the neck.
This knit has a reasonable amount of ease so will fit a variety of sizes from a 38” bust up to a 42”
Flat bust 19" stretching to 21”
Flat waist 13” stretching to 16”
Shoulders between sleeves 16”
Underarm sleeve length 7”
