Free 1940s Knitting Pattern: Ladies Cable PulloverToday's free pattern comes from the book Knitted Garments for All by Jane Koster and Margaret Murray. It is one of a series of books that where published in the 1930s and 1940s and I think most vintage knitters will be familiar with them. I'm hoping to collect all of them. I don't know the exact publication date of this one, but someone wrote: "To Kathleen. From Harold. Christmas 1943."
I purposely picked a pattern that is nice and warm for winter! To view the PDF click here. You can find the pattern on Ravelry here.
Tough clothes for tough jobs by all means - but you can be attractively though! For a real, honest outdoor session in the garden, this cable jersey in 4-ply wool is highly recommended.
By the way, this book has a really amazing endpaper design!
