1953 Shoulderette Finished!

Knitting this shoulderette from a pattern from 1953 only took me 2.5 months! Yeek.

First I ran out of yarn, then the store didn’t carry it anymore, so I had to order it online. Once it arrived I pulled the yarn out to start knitting and…

Yeah. That only took 20 minutes to sort out. But sort it out I did, and finished up the shoulderette while watching the last season of ‘Lark Rise to Candleford.’


I am happy with how it turned out, there are only a few minor screw-ups on the whole thing. And despite it being short-sleeved, it’s pretty darn warm.

The pattern is available on Ravelry (free!) but it originally comes from the site Free Vintage Knitting. Which is a wonderful site that’s sort of like falling down the rabbit hole if you’re a fan of vintage knits.

See you in a few!
