Men's Textured Jumper, c. 1940s - Woolworths Economy Knits 23

Well hello again!

Life's been exceptionally busy rght now, but just stopped by quickly to share this interesting men's jumper with you.


It's from Woolworths Economy Knits 23, circa early 1940s. I really like the interesting (almost arabesque) pattern design, don't you? Its a great compromise between an interesting pattern (for the knitter) and a masculine look (for the wearer).

Pattern size for a 38 inch chest, knitted using fingering weight yarn and 2.75mm & 3.25mm needles.
