Vintage Striped Cardigan Knitting Pattern

By Cedar | March 31, 2014

Thank you all for the kind words and well wishes regarding my last post. We are so excited and a little scared of what the future holds. I have been beyond exhausted, the second time around has been so different than the first. I have had morning sickness and nausea, which I didn’t have with Lucy. Vegetables have been so hard for me to stomach the past few weeks and we have been living off of take out and fruit salad. I look forward to regaining my energy (and appetite!) now that I am almost into the second trimester.

Anyhow, it has been a while since I posted a vintage knitting pattern, so I thought I would get to that today. This gorgeous pattern is from Vogue Knitting Book, Fall and Winter 1957. Even though it is from their Fall and Winter issue, I think it would make the perfect Spring cardigan, don’t you?

    Hang in there!! I totally relate; the second time around was just like that for me too, complete with super-fatigue, nausea and vegetable aversions. I was dismayed. Wishing you a calmer stomach in the weeks ahead! :)

    This is one of the loveliest striped sweaters I’ve seen in a long time. I tend to sidestep stripes for myself (no matter the direction they’re going, they rarely seem to do my short, curvy figure many favours), but I would wear this in a heartbeat (in red or most any colour – I think the right shade of purple could be really pretty). Thank you for sharing, dear gal!

    I just found your blog through Jessica at Chronically Vintage and have been enjoying it thoroughly.
    Congratulations on your new baby! I’m expecting number four, and can tell you that you will get bigger and more uncomfortable more quickly with each pregnancy, but the good news is that a lot of vintage maternity is super comfy on a growing belly. I look forward to seeing more of your blog in the future.

    Hi Sarah, and thank you! I have a little stockpile of vintage maternity clothes that I am looking forward to wearing as soon as I grow a little bigger (I am still swimming in them now!). Congrats on your 4th! -Cedar
