This PDF is an unaltered scan of a 1950s American Thread Company pattern for a knitted long-sleeve, form-fitting women’s cardigan with a 5-inch wide ribbed waistband. It's very perky, very sheik---and can be trimmed with beads or rhinestones, as shown.

Directions are for size 12, with changes for 14, 16 and 18 in parentheses. Please note that these are 1950s sizes, which are not the same as modern sizes. (See measurements below.) It calls for 9 (10, 11, 12) ounces of Dacron “Dawn” polyester yarn, which was a 3-ply fingering yarn that came in 1-ounce skeins. I can’t find any information on the yard per skein, but the gauge is 1 inch per 8 stitches on No. 2 needles.
