Free Vintage Knitting Magazine – Stitchcraft January 1947

Stitchcraft Jan 1947 p

This issue has the above Fair Isle jumper and cap (33-35 inch bust), snug legging for a toddler, a raglan boys jumper (27 inch chest), a knitted nightie and bed jacket (if that sounds weird, imagine winter with no central heating and a limited amount of coal); a bobble and stripe jumper (33-35), four sizes of polo neck pullover (31-33, 34-36, 37-39 and 40-42). There are some Ministry of Food recipes on page 17 for a Christmas party too.

Above – a warm ribbed jacket with an unusual bobble stitch. If you aren’t the 34-36 inch bust this is made for, you can get a multi-sized pattern created from this vintage magazine in Stitch In Time Vol 2.  by Susan Crawford. Buy the book, I’ve met Susan and she is lovely and deserves pots of cash. She also sells it as an ebook via Ravelry.
