THE VINTAGE KNITTER #3: CAREFREE & CASUAL

Welcome to EverythingCroton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

CALLING ALL CROTON KNITTERS: Introducing a new series here at EverythingCroton: THE VINTAGE KNITTER! -
We got the idea when Hallie Flanagan Wolfe of hallieflanaganwolfegardens.com, recently donated a small cache of dogeared but very interesting vintage knitting and crochet magazines from the 1940's through the 1960's. Some of these patterns are simply gorgeous!

Our third installment in the series is CAREFREE AND CASUAL, 1943, A Size 16 woman’s pullover. Click on the photo.
