This PDF includes the 14 patterns for separates in the 1957 Spring & Summer issue of Vogue Knitting Book, as well as the cover Lace Cardigan pattern and the magazine's front matter articles. Most pattern directions are for size 12 with changes for sizes 14 and 16, but please see the detail after each item below. Note that sizing has changed since 1957 when apparently every lady wore a waist-cinching girdle (see below).
