This 1930s Forget Me Not Jumper ⁄ Sweater has a clever neckline and scarf that will stay put without knotting and the belt is enchanting. The original jumper was knitted in pale blue with a dark blue belt and scarf. For the office, this jumper knitted in dark brown or black would look lovely with a scarf and belt in pale blue or raspberry.

Length from top of shoulder to base:  19 inches

Sleeve seam:  18 1⁄2 inches, adjustable to any length

Using No. 9 needles, work to produce 7 stitches and 9 rows to 1 square inch in smooth fabric (1 row knit, 1 row purl).


The original yarn may not be available due to the age of the pattern. Select the yarn type that is closest to the weight of the original yarn.


When reworking the pattern it is best to knit a tension swatch with your chosen yarn. To get the correct measurements, your tension must be the same as stated in the pattern.  If there is no tension specified in the pattern, you might have to calculate the tension based on the total number of stitches at the widest part of the back and front bodice and divide it by the bust measurement specified.


Happy Knitting!
