wartime 1940s vintage wartime slip-over knitting pattern

Patons 991L: Great vintage wartime slip over knitting pattern for wearing on those precious times off! Easy pattern, very useful on those 1940s weekend re-enactment get togethers - be authentic, use genuine wartime patterns knitted in pure wool. This one is in vintage 3ply so use modern 4ply. Bust 32" you can make larger size by using larger needles or knitting in double knitting, but don’t forget to allow for more wool - this little top only takes 200g or thereabouts in 4ply.
