As you may or may not know, along with all of the other things I am trying to juggle right now, I have a free pattern and project website/blog called The Crafty Tipster. It has a variety of free craft, crochet, embroidery and vintage knitting projects and patterns. Unfortunately, it’s been quite some time since I’ve added anything new to it.
This pattern, like so many from the time does not include much information about swatching or sizing but there is a small clue in one of the instructions – it mentions casting on 119 stitches which will make up the 24 inch-wide back of the sweater.
It does require multiple size knitting needles but otherwise to this non-knitter it looks fairly straightforward to make.
If anyone does give it a go, please post your comments so that others may have your insight into how hard or easy this Vintage Sweater Coat Pattern is to make. Also, I would love to include a picture of you or the lucky someone you make this sweater for.
This article is a bit old, but you can learn more about becoming a Crafty Tipster and how your participation in the site can garner free advertising for your crafting-related website.
