I recently picked up this 1960s Patons pattern for school jumpers … in pretty well mint condition.
And hand knit school jumpers, complete with the obligatory stripe around the V-neck and cuffs, were a big thing back in the day (I love that saying).
I didn’t realise quite how big until I hunted out this primary school photo of mine … it’s my grade 3 primary school class photo from 1968.
Check out how many grandmothers and mothers have knit jumpers using the basic Patons patterns … including the school jumper.
PS Which one do you think is me? A prize to the person who gets it right.
EDITED TO ADD: Jo very quickly identified the real me ... the blonde with missing teeth seated right in the centre of the front row. I wonder if Jo had an unfair advantage having spent the weekend as my roomie at Sew It Together? Jo ... an email's on its way.
