vintage 1940 ladies fiar isle knitting pattern

Greenock BK7: Pretty vintage knitting pattern for a short sleeved fair isle jumper. This one is so typical of the time, my mother said she made one just like this the month before she joined the WAAF in 1940 - and wore it until after she had me, which was in 1949! Knitted in vintage 3ply, so  use modern 4ply and work a tension square to make sure you don't need to change needles to get the correct size. The instructions are for 32 inch bust, if made in thicker wool or on larger needles you could go up to a 34 inch bust, see how many stitches you knit to an inch in the wool chosen and change needles to get the size you want.

vintage ladies angora fair isle jumper knitting pattern 1940s

Patons 344: Great vintage ladies fair isle knitting pattern 1940s. Stunning ANGORA jumper with fair isle addition, most angora at the time worked out at 4ply, so try a tension square in a 4ply yarn or angora (see links for angora suppliers in Scotland) Always work a tension square. Beryl was a finer angora than most 4plys, but this is a good option for a modern replacement. Although angora is expensive because it is so light you get a lot of yardage to your ball. If using ordinary 4ply allow a little more yarn. To fit  34 inch bust. Nice deep rib and shaped body gives a figure hugging, slimming garment. Not charted.

vintage knitting pattern for ladies blue birds 1940

Patons 345L: Stunning ANGORA vintage knitting pattern from late 1940s early 1950s for jumper with blue birds on fair isle at top, in white angora (fuzzy Wuzzy rabbit wool - try Orkney  Angora see links page for details) To fit 34 inch bust. This calls for Beryl which was a fine ply angora similar to modern 3ply. So do tension square in chosen yarn and change needles accordingly to get tension correct for your size. Alternatively you can use any modern 3ply yarn, but still work a tension square first. If you use angora, which will knit to a 4ply tension, you will need a bit more yarn than stated so allow at least 200g of 4ply angora - it will also knit up a bit larger.

Patons 427L: Great vintage ladies fair isle knitting pattern for a twin set 1950s. This pattern is a nice simple fair isle but very typical of the time. The very first fair isle pattern I knitted in late 1950s at 10 years old was this basic check in lines. To fit 34, 36 and 38 inch bust. Always work tension square in the yarn you choose and change needles to get the correct tension. Vintage 3ply is suggested, so try modern 4ply as this is nearer the ply used at that time.
