1930's knitwear- geometric and fantastic!







There's something about jumpers from the 20's and 30's. Everything seems adventurous and new with a twist of sporty flare. These are all free knitting patterns that you can make at home using light fingering or fingering weight wool. No wonder I am so underwhelmed by todays knitwear fashions...yawn!

 I would love to knit the first sweater and perhaps incorporate the second sweaters stripe pattern into a more modern knit-in-the-round construction and perhaps knit top down as well! I have just been gifted a copy of knitting without tears that contains an excellent top-down raglan sweater for all different gauges.
