1950s Blouse – Vintage Knitting Pattern

By Cedar | May 23, 2012

Well look at that. I think I figured out how to turn a knitting pattern into a PDF file (assuming it works for you all!).

As I mentioned in my last post I recently acquired a pretty hefty stack of vintage knitting patterns. My knitting skills are still pretty limited, so I thought the first pattern I would post would be a simple blouse. I have not made this pattern, but am presenting it to you as it is in the booklet I have. If I ever finish the bolero I have been knitting for weeks and weeks and weeks, I may give this one a try, it looks like the perfect little top for summer.

Look for more free knitting patterns in the future, I plan on posting a new one every week.

If any of you do make this pretty top, please let me know. I would love to see pictures, and possibly feature them in a blog post.

    What a great idea, thank you!
    I’m also trying to learn to knit, my MIL and SIL are helping me to understand the patterns, and one day I will be knitting from English patterns, so I’m collecting. :)

    Hi! I found this pattern and your blog from The Vintage Pattern Files and love the both! I’m seriously looking at knitting this up but I’m a lot new at this and have difficulties figuring out sizes. On the pattern it says it includes instructions for sizes 12, 14 and 16 and to see the sizing chart inside the front page for details. Is there any chance you’d be willing to scan this information and upload it, or type it in here? Thanks heaps!
