Knitting - a 1947 pullover


This sweater, to me, is the "classic" 40's sweater. I can see Lauren Bacall in this one, with a wide-shouldered, tailored tweed jacket and a wide-brimmed felt hat. It's knitted in mistake-stitch rib and in what appears to be sportweight wool.

It's from Smart Knitting and Needlework, 1947. Instructions can be downloaded from my Flickr account, here.

This absolutely would suit Lauren Bacall!

I don't know why but the words "chic yet tough" come to mind. Very noir.
