Free Pattern Friday: Ask And Ye Shall Receive.

Per request, here’s the other pattern shown in a previous post from Minerva Vol. 40. Inspired in equal parts by jaunty sailor and 60s taxicab, the pattern features a checkered collared top, skirt with checkered pockets, and a giant crocheted coat for those nippy cruise ship evenings.

    1. If you knit this whole outfit up, I’ll make a special Knitting Iron Cross badge for you and ship it out.

    2. Thank you so very much for sharing this pattern. I’ve been searching for a simple “car” coat (or “cruise” coat) for a while, and this one looks perfect! It’s wonderful that you’re rescuing and archiving old patterns; passing them on to younger generations… I just found your website and look forward to seeing more!

      1. Alas, due to unrepentant theft by ebay user ‘bythelightofthemoon’ (documented elsewhere on the site), I’m no longer posting vintage patterns. I’m glad you’re enjoying the ones available though!
