Year – 1940s

Size – 34, 36 inch busts

Yarn Size – 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.

    Many thanks for sharing this! I have just bound off my sleeves and am in the process of weaving all my ends in for blocking. Trying to get my head around designing a matching sweater for a twinset with a fair isle yoke.

    I Saw This Just Browsing. I Said “Oh, I Like That” Then I Scrolled Down Only To Find Out This Jumper And I Have The Same Name… Absolutely Amazing. I Guess It’s A Sign That I Should Make One! Thanks So Much. Cheers!
