Free WW2 Knitting Pattern – La Laine Fair Isle Cardigan


It’s for a 34 – 36 inch bust and is made in 3 ply. If only there was a chart for it, like modern knitting patterns. You can always make your own using I don’t find La Laine patterns very often. they seem to be a brand name of Bairns-wear, which was a Nottingham brand. I’m really sorry there is a very unacceptable word in one of the yarn colour names.
