vintage ladies cardigan double knitting wool 1930s

Robin 37L: Great ladies vintage cardigan knitting pattern 1930s. This design has a lovely collar - this style was to reoccur in the 1950s. The crisp cables and low buttoned front are so stylish. The ply is not given, but by the size of needles imperial 9 and 6 (3.75 and 5mm)and the design I would suggest using a thick double knitting or aran weight in a tension square changing needles to get the correct tension. Strangely enough there is no tension guide or size on this early pattern. I would guess at a medium size - so do a tension square in your chosen wool and change needles until you get the size you want!
