This lovely pattern is a set and I will be sharing both. If you want to see the matching cardigan pattern click this link.

If this isn’t your size, I highly recommend investing in one of Susan Crawford’s books. She is publishing a vintage Fair Isle book, which I preordered. There are charts and a huge range of sizes for every pattern and each is based on a vintage pattern in her collection.

Year – this is a tiny pattern so definitely from the 1940s. As I’ve said before, this was due to paper shortages. The twinset in fair isle is a classic of wartime making do.

Size – 32, 34, 36 inch bust (17 1/2 inches measured flat)

Yarn Size – 3 ply
