Hey guys! I’m going to keep this post short and sweet since I’m on the run to leave for work.
Today’s freebie knitting pattern is from the Woman’s Day publication in 1950 titled: To Knit and Wear.

If knits weren’t stretchy enough, this is a bias-knit Sweater. It’s knitted from one side corner all the way up to the opposite shoulder. Neat huh? I’d love to knit this just to see how the pattern fully works.
This sweater is knit using a US size 3 knitting needle and a heavy-fingering weight yarn with a gauge of 7.5 stitches per inch. It has three different sizes: 12,14, and 16 (or 30″, 32″, and 34 ” bust).
I picked out this pattern today because the construction looked interesting along with the lovely styling. Is it me or could this model pass off as a 50’s Bonnie (from the styling of the 1967’s movie with Faye Dunaway)? She looks very chic and sassy, don’t you think?
Sorry for the shortness of this post. You’ll hear more of my ramblings a bit later today as I complain about my current sewing project. :)
