Knitted blouse from 1945

I have been knitting and knitting and knitting and knitting lately. Well, also sewing a lot. But I knit to relax and I find the process very soothing. It slows me down and gives me time to think and organize my thoughts.

Here is a jumper from 1945 I just finished.

 



As you can see, the original pattern (free! click here) suggests 3 colours but I found the lace pattern so interesting that I opted to only use a blue alpaca wool.

  1. What a gorgeous colour blue you have chosen for this cute sweater. I am not sure I am confident enough with knitting to try this pattern - was it really easy?

  2. So cute! and a really beautiful color. When I learn to knit (hopefully soon!), I want to do a top like this.

  3. @Penny-Rose. Once you get the hang of the lace pattern it's quite easy!

  5. Hello! Beautiful jumper! How long did it take you to knit it? I used to knit but I gave up because it gave rise to too many unfinished objects. I would love to make something like this though!
