This piece has been entirely hand knitted from an original 1940's knitting pattern.
A close fitting piece with a neat rib welt and yoke, the piece has a pretty design in stripes and slip stitches and fastens on the left shoulder with two faceted plastic buttons.
The base shade is Cherry Red by Sirdar, which is a 50% wool, 50% acrylic mix. The accent stripes are worked in Burnt Orange, which is also a Sirdar shade and then Ivy and Dune, both of which are King Cole Merino Blend which is 100% pure wool.
It is an authentic reproduction of an original 1940's knit.
The colours are truest in the close up photo of the design.
It will best fit a 34" bust but to ensure it will fit you properly, please compare the measurements below to a similar piece you already own.
Flat bust 16" stretching to 17" - there is more give to the design but if it becomes overstretched the design doesn't look as good
Flat waist 13" stretching to 16"
Shoulders between sleeves 14"
Underarm sleeve length 5.5"
