The entire 1930s Harlequin Three Piece Wool Suit is surprisingly easy to knit! The pattern includes instructions to knit the checkered jacket, skirt and vest.  The sporty jacket fastens cleverly to the two large buttons sewn on the white vest.  The black edges and belt, and the black skirt combine with the white checks in a jaunty ensemble.

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.


Happy Knitting!
