Pattern In Magazine

It’s from the December 1958 issue of Modern Knitting.

I’m knitting it on the Knitmaster 4500 using the Cygnet Wool Rich 4ply that I bought with some of the vouchers that Billy gave me for my birthday in December.

I don’t think I’ll bother putting the pockets in the front, although having said that I’ll no doubt change my mind.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

Jumper Back

The pattern at the bottom is really easy to do. Put every 3rd stitch into holding position, knit 2 rows. Put every 3rd stitch back into working position, knit 2 rows. Those four rows are the pattern.

The most tedious part was taking the work off onto waste yarn after knitting the patterned section, turning it round and re-hanging it with the plain side facing.

Here’s a close up of the pattern:

Stitch Pattern Close Up

My tension is slightly off, it should be 16sts and 24 rows to 2 inches. I got 16 stitches and 22 rows to 2 inches. So if I knit the number of rows the pattern says it will end up longer than the measurements they give – I think – or will it be shorter? I’m never quite sure how it works. Oh well, I’ll find out when it’s finished. The back seems OK so I think it will be alright.

Talk to you later,
