Free Vintage Knitting Pattern – “A Popular Model” 30s Ladies Yoke Cardigan

I bought this at Spitalfields Market on a Thursday which is flea market and antique day. It’s become my regular day trip, to the point where the button stall owner recognises me. This time when I arrived, she produced a box from under the table full of knitting patterns. This cardigan is on my to make list now. It’s for a 32/34 inch bust, which is a little small for me. Designed for “KwikKnit” wool and 7mm needles (old UK size 2) it will probably knit up pretty quickly.

See it on Google docs here.

  1. I’m putting the finishing touches on this one – just have to buy and stitch on the buttons. I altered it a small bit – I knitted it in Bernat Softee Chunky to be more of a chunky cardigan to wear on nippy mornings, and I knitted the button bands separately, in ribbing, stitching them on afterwards. I’m not 100% happy with my efforts, but all in all it’s not bad 🙂

    • That’s marvellous Bridget. I’ve always picked up stitches to make button bands and they are a pain to get the right number of stitches – next time I might knit them separately and see them on.
