From a Fleisher's Knitting and Crochet Manual from 1918 comes this lovely sweater pattern, just in time for summer! Ha ha.
But it really is a great pattern, easy and quickly knit in any worsted weight wool. I knit this in about one week, but I did abandon all other projects during that time and I was at my mom's house. She has cable and I don't. When I get access to it I can't stop. I used, big surprise, Cascade 220. The pattern is $6.00, it uses 6-10 skeins of Cascade 220 for finished bust sizes of 40-56". I think this is a great and flattering sweater for all shapes and sizes. For more pictures look at the post entitled "a new sweater." Enjoy!

this looks awesome. i love old patterns & updating them, but not to the point of taking away from the original. btw this is jen, the girl that comes in & buys lace like crazy (think peacock feathers). i finally stopped lurking & being shy.

this is awesome though. i do need to knit more sweaters. wearing only stockinette squares/circles/triangles with strategically placed holes don't necessarily keep your torso warm during a winter in philly. unless it's rowan big wool.
