Vintage knitting pattern for an eye-catching women's cropped cardigan / jacket - described as a 'bolero'
Undated but probably published during the late 1940s or early 1950s
Lavenda Hand Knit Pattern No 439 - published by Lister & Co., UK
Printed on good-quality matt paper

Intended for use with a medium weight yarn (vintage UK double knitting or equivalent) on old UK size 9 knitting needles/pins (the US equivalent being 5; the metric equivalent being 3.75mm)
Crochet hook also required for the edging

As was customary at the time, the instructions are for ONE SIZE only (approx. 34-36" bust): please refer to photo for other measurements

In good condition. Some creasing and age discolouration. Back cover is a little grubby. Shop stamp to front cover. A pin-sized hole to top left hand corner (presumably pinned with a drawing pin at some point). No stains, tears or annotations

You are purchasing the ORIGINAL pattern, not a copy

I offer a combined shipping discount - please see 'Shop Policies' for details. Shipping costs are usually estimated at time of listing (particularly for combined shipping) but any significant overcharge will be refunded
