Hema 269: Great vintage little girls dress knitting pattern 1920/30s. This lovely pattern is worked in vintage silk and angora yarn, sadly difficult to get, but you can by angora (see links pages) and us a 4ply pure wool - unless you can find a light weight silk yarn - there are some around - look on ebay. But this does knit up well in modern 4ply, just change needles to get the size right. This one fits chest 22 inches and is 16 inches long. The rabbit wool is used after the knitting is finished to edge in crochet and to work the little balls in the squares. You could cast on the sleeves and cast of the neck in rabbit wool if you did not want to do the crochet.
