Curvy Month Pattern - Diagonally Striped Cardigan, c. 1940s

I know i've been a little 1940s-heavy with the Curvy Month Patterns, but I just can't help loving that era so much.

This cardigan from Weldons has a great diagonal stitch pattern thats really just a variation on a rib stitch. I believe this pattern is from the mid-late 1940s due to the military shoulders in the pattern and lack of 'puff'. And her hair is just fabulous!
A variation is included for a round neck as well.

Sized to fit a 40-42 inch bust, on fingering weight yarn.

This is very pretty. No doubt the diagonal lines were meant to slim down the waist.

I've bookmarked all of the curvy month patterns, but this is the clear winner for me. This one is now at the top of my project list. Thanks for sharing these patterns!

This is definately a mid 1940's pattern. It is very similar i it's stitch pattern to the "Date-Maker" by Colombia yarn company.

It is a really easy pattern repeat to knit and the result is stunning, the diagonals are very becoming on a curvy figure.
