vintage  grils skirt jumper cardigan knitting pattern 1930s

Greenock M11: Great vintage knitting pattern for girls three piece suit with cardigan, short sleeved jumper and pleated skirt. These outfits were very popular through out the 1930, 1940s and the 1950s. This one is from the 1930s and is worked in vintage 4ply. The needles size would seem to be for our modern 4ply so try a tension square in modern 4ply and see if the needles need changed - you can always work one in double knitting. (it is advisable when doing vintage knitting to keep a spare ball of modern 3ply, 4ply, double knitting and aran on hand to try these tension squares to give you an idea as how things have changed.) The deep V cardigan is very classic of this era, as is the little wide rib fancy jumper with flare collar. The skirt has a wide panel at the front and is shaped during knitting by working stitches together at various intervals. I had one of these for school in grey and yellow in the early 1950s!
