Bestway 1694 & Bestway 1695 - two vintage knitting patterns for a ladies short sleeve jumper and a matching cardigan. Together make a beautiful and elegant lady's twin set, typical fashion from the 1940s.
Both pattern leaflets are in good vintage condition, the jumper leaflet especially and with the cardigan pattern not quite as good, but with a bit of a raggedy spine at the top and a small amount of stains on the cover. However both are free from knitters notes and marks
Knitting instructions to make a lady's jumper in bell stitch, with a matching lady's cardigan in a separate leaflet and together making a beautiful twin set.
One size to fit 36" bust approximately after pressing. The instructions also state that if you use larger size needles the twin set would go up to a 40" bust.
The original yarn used to make both items was Sirdar Majestic 3 ply wool.
Tension: 7 sts to 1".
You should work a tension square for success.
Great collectors items.
