Free Pattern (Black) Friday

The free pattern this month is from 'Easy Stitch Jumpers', a small sized magazine that was originally a free giveaway with My Weekly magazine. It looks to be mid 1930s.

This pattern is knitted in K1, P1 rib and moss stitch, it has a pretty contrast collar and cuffs, with little ties. The colour suggestions are rather fun: primrose and brown, or 'Margaret Rose' (which must mean a pink shade) and brown. Or the safe choice of navy and white, or scarlet and white.

Worked in 3 ply wool, with a tension of 7 stitches and 9.5 rows to an inch. Instructions are for long or short sleeves.

We celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday, as my husband is American. Turkey and all the trimmings. My husband even baked a pumpkin pie. It was lovely.



  1. Your husband BAKES????!!! Jeeeesh, you lucky gal ;)
    Thanks for the pattern, I'll be knitting 'til I'm 110!

  2. As claimed by Stanford Medical, It's indeed the SINGLE reason women in this country get to live 10 years longer and weigh on average 19 KG less than us.

    (And realistically, it has totally NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret exercise and EVERYTHING to around "how" they eat.)

    BTW, What I said is "HOW", not "what"...
