This PDF is an unaltered* scan of a 2-page 1959 National Needlecraft Bureau pattern for a women's knitted waistcoat with lace panels. It looks like something Della Street (a.k.a., Perry Mason’s secretary) would wear. It’d be a great way to add some classic feminine charm to an otherwise boring workweek.

Directions are given for a size 12 (or what was a size 12 in 1959. See measurements below). Changes for sizes 14 and 16 are in parentheses. Materials needed are 7 (8, 8) balls of J&P Coats Big Ball Best Six Cord Mercerized Crochet thread (Art. A.104) or 5 (5, 6) balls of Clark’s Big Ball Mercerized Crochet thread (Art. B.34), 1 pair of No. 0 knitting needles, 1 No. 9 steel crochet hook, and 5 buttons. Gauge is 11 stitches or 15 rows for 1 inch, worked tightly throughout. The Coats and Clark threads are No. 20 weight, which is absurdly thin to knit with ... so beware.
