Free Pattern: Two 1940s Knitted Cardigan Patterns


 1940s free vintage knitting cardigan and vest patterns from Va-Voom Vintage

Here are some more knitting patterns from my poor crumbly 1942 knitting pattern booklet. I want to save these patterns and post them online to share before they crumble into pieces forever!

  1. A size 16 is a 36 bust, is that correct?

  2. The pattern book doesn't have any size guides or gauges but I think it would be close to a 34 inch bust, depending on what gauge you knit in and your yarn/needle size. there's good information here about vintage knit sizes.


I read every single comment (even on old posts) and they make my day! If you have a question, please email me at Thank you for reading me!
