This piece has been entirely hand knitted from an original 1940s Bestway knitting pattern.
Worked in Stylecraft Bellissima thick DK in a shade called Raspberry Riot, it is quite a chunky yarn in 100% acrylic making it perfect for those who can’t wear wool. Beautifully shaped, it has broad rib, which gives a close fit, cable yoke and sleeves and a broad shoulder design giving the classic 1940s silhouette - it is finished with a neat collar.
It has a decent amount of ease so will fit a variety of sizes. It’s meant to be close fitting on the bodice.
Flat bust 17” stretching to 20”
Waist will work on a 28” up to a 34”
Shoulders between sleeves 15”
Underarm sleeve length 4.5
