*I hope this is in an appropriate sub-forum; I couldn't think of a better place for it*

Hello knitters! I had the good fortune of finding some vintage patterns at VV, and after some research into US copyright law, I've decided to share one of them with you Cheesy It's a Marriner pattern from the late 40s or early 50s, leaflet #156, and from my researches, it is very unlikely that it is still under copyright. For more about the copyright implications, please see this post:


I'll take this opportunity to encourage you all to refrain from using this pattern for any sort of commercial purposes, in the event that someone still owns the rights to this pattern. If anyone associated with the Marriner estate happens to come across this and would like me to remove the pattern, I'll do so.

Soooooo, what I'd really like to see is how this pattern looks, made up into the real deal! I don't knit (yet), but I'm sure at least a few people on this board would like to give it a try Cheesy It includes instructions for bust 32 up to bust 42. Click the thumbnails to be taken to my photobucket, where you can expand the images to 100%.

The third page has some gunk on it. The instructions for the 15th row should read "(K1, P1) twice, K1, * P2 tog, wrn, P5, P2 tog, wrn, P4, repeat from * to last 9 sts, P2 tog, wrn, P2, K1, (P1, K1) twice."

This is one of those things that really makes me want to take up yet another craft Tongue

Wow, thanks so much for sharing such a lovely pattern! I've added it to the Ravelry database of patterns so others there can find it as well. Thanks again!
