Stitchcraft Freebie: Turret Blouse Pattern

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted up a knitting pattern for you all!

I also feel like it’s been even longer since I’ve actively worked on my knitting. But I am happy to report I’ve once again picked up my needles and have been making a bit of headway on my navy Sun-Ray top; it’s only been 20 rows or so, but I figure it’s better than nothing. I’ll share a progress shot when I make a bit more progress. :)

Getting back in the swing of things brings me to this cheery spring top that I’ve had in my favorites pile, waiting to be shared.

This pattern comes from the May 1951 edition of Stitchcraft.  This jumper is made with a fingering weight yarn with a gauge of 7.5 sts and 9.5 rows to an inch.  This jumper is written for a 35-36 inch bust, but could be easily increased to a larger bust size by casting on more stitches along with making more increases at the side seams.

Every since I got this edition of Stitchcraft, I’ve been longing to make this jumper.  I even went out and bought the yarn so that I could make it as soon as my size 2 knitting needles were freed-up, but that has yet to happen.  I’m trying to be good and finish one knitting project before starting others up.  (I wish I could be as strict with my sewing as I am with my knitting.)  Ahh well…

I love knitting, but I always wish I could knit soo many more projects that I can feasibly do.  I wish my little fingers could work double speed.  :)

Happy Friday everyone!

    Cute top! It will look nice on you. I might take a stab at it myself.

    Ooh, this is another winner, I can see why you would want to make this cute sweater! I know I mentioned this with your last knitting freebie, but I seriously think you should consider a knit-along. Perhaps sometime this fall? You’ve posted quite a few sweaters that I would galdly add to my wardrobe – and what better way to give you some extra motivation to move through a project? (Honestly I need the motivation too, my latest knitting project hasn’t been picked up in so long that I don’t even remember where I put it).

    Oh, I really like this one! Alas, my size 2 needles are also occupied at the moment.

    That’s darling! A really fun little way to do a belt, too!
