Knitting - a 1925 Golf Sweater



"The girl who golfs will find this slip-on sports jacket smart and becoming." The sweater is from Modern Priscilla, April 1925, and the photo and two pages of instructions can be found on my Flickr account.

Hi - I'm blog stalking.

I love this! I don't knit, but it sure makes me want to learn.

I've noticed that some knitting pattern books still used the term "smart" at least into the 1960s. It sounds so grownup, somehow!

"Dainty" and "cunning" -- are two other overworked teens and 20's fashion terms!

Packrat, there are videos...YouTube even has them ;-)
