I made this because I wanted to practice a lace stitch, which I’d never done before. Very simple pattern, from Free Vintage Knitting – it’s just a rectangle that you sew together along the sides to make the sleeves.
The pattern was originally published in 1953, on the pamphlet Fashions in Wool #76, Stoles and Accessories by Hilde Fuchs.
I’m satisfied with the result, although the fit isn’t the best in my opinion.
Here’s a back view where you can see the bagginess under the arms. I guess I couldn’t expect much more from a knit rectangle with no shaping to it. 😛
This is the finished piece before seaming, and a couple detail shots of the lace.
