1930's Knitting - An Aristocrat in White and Scarlet

An Aristocrat in White and Scarlet
Australian Woman's Weekly 1935
(32" Bust)

"You’ll agree this jumper is lovely enough to set every knitting needle a-flying! Featuring the new, wide shoulder effect, this delightful diagonal-rib jumper combines scarlet and white - that much loved color combination - very effectively. The back, front and sleeves are knitted up to a certain point, joined together, then all the stiches are picked up on four needles and the yoke is worked round and round as you would for a stocking. Use two needles to make the body and sleeves."
