Vintage 30s 1930s knitting pattern for a stunning lady's Art Deco style twin set

Published by Defiance Knitting Wools (UK) - leaflet no. 830
Probably published during the 1930s (could be early 1940s - but the lavish colour scheme suggests that it was published prior to wartime rationing)

This is an absolutely stunning design. Patterns by Defiance (one of the less well-known UK wool companies) are also becoming increasingly difficult to source
A rare and desirable item indeed

As was customary at the time, the instructions are given for one size only: 34" bust (length 24")

This pattern is use with a relatively fine yarn (vintage UK 3 ply or equivalent) on old UK needles sizes 11 and 12 (the metric equivalents being 3.00mm and 2.75mm; the US equivalents being 2.5 and 2)

Although printed on quite a thin glossy paper (and therefore quite fragile) this pattern is in good condition for its age. It has been folded vertically at some point and there is general creasing (including a corner fold), a couple of very small tears and general age discolouration. There are also rust marks from rusted staples (although this pattern does not itself have staples it has obviously been stored at some point next to a pattern that did!). The instructions are complete and legible - stain free though there is one very small annotation (a correction)

You are purchasing the ORIGINAL pattern, not a copy

I am happy to provide a combined shipping discount - please see 'Shop Policies' for details (shipping charges are usually estimated at time of listing but any significant overcharge on shipping will be refunded)
