FREE PATTERN 1940's Knitting - Tempelton Quick Knit Cardigan
Tempelton Quick Knit Cardigan No.978
(34" Bust)

Todays pattern was kindly shared by Agnes, who sweetly notice this pattern was absent from the files and offered to share it with us all, how lovely!

Its a gorgeous little cardigan which I would say is from the late 1940's early 50's and is knitted in a very interesting yet simple pattern, which is quick to knit!
