vintage angora knitting pattern from 1920s or maybe even earlier for ladies cardigan and scarf set

Angora 6: Fabulous vintage knitting pattern from 1920s for jumper, beret and scarf. This beautiful set is knitted in super soft Angora in a simple block design. There are no measurements or needles sizes in this pattern but will guess that it is to fit an average size of 34-36 inch bust. Work a tension square either in Angora that knits to a 4ply or modern 4ply and see how many stitches are knitted to the inch then you can see how big it will be - adjust size by changing needles. if you start with the scarf this will be easy as size is not so important. Needles would be old size 8 or 4mm, just try different sizes until it looks right.
