Today’s pattern freebie comes from the February 1943 edition of Stitchcraft. I think it’s quite funny that it was designed for “Granny” but I think it’s so pretty so I titled it the Lovely Granny Sweater. Apparently I love me some granny-wear. :)

This pattern is designed for two size ranges: a 32-34 bust range and a 36-38 bust range. The gauge calls for 7 stitches per inch on size 9 knitting needles. The needle conversion works out to 3.5mm or 3.75mm depending and the yarn would be a sport weight yarn (given the 7 stitches per inch). Sport weight and multisized!
Due to the high neckline, there is a 2 button closure at the back of the neckline.
I don’t think this pattern is for the lighthearted knitter. I got confused just reading the yoke section, but I’m sure I could figure it out if i had the actual yarn and needles working in my hands. I’d just have to take it line by line and work through it. Sometimes you just have to trust the pattern. :)
Well guys, I hope you have a great weekend! I actually have the whole day off and I’ve been debating how I am going to spend it. I’m thinking about going to my fav local vintage shop and browsing around, getting a latte and then just vegging all day long. I’ve burnt myself out at my 9-5 job that I just need a break, ya know. I hope to be running full steam soon because my fancy cruise dress isn’t going to make itself. heh
