Free Pattern... err... Monday?

OK so I did not forget last Friday... when I actually had some time.  I just hadn't scanned in one yet for you!  So I thought I would add it today, because Liz from Zilredloh has kindly given me a shout-out today!

Today's offering, comes from a Bernat book from 1960.  I discovered it hiding amongst some other vintage patterns, and fell immediately in love with the two cardigans on the front.  Then I flipped it over and fell for the  two on the back.  And a number of the ones inside.  1960 is right on the edge of my favourite time period for vintage pieces, but these cardigans are all classics!

Even better, the cardigans are knitted at a larger tension/gauge than the other vintage patterns I have.  I am giving you the one on the left today... a simple ribbed cardigan, knitted in a worsted weight yarn!
Tension/Gauge is 9sts to 2 inches and 6 rows to 1 inch.

Bernat 1960s Ribbed Cardigan.

I personally bought the pattern for the cardigan on the right, and have plans to cast on for that after my 1950s pattern is done.  Yes, it is taking forever LOL  But the good news is that I am finally onto the sleeves!  Everything else (including sewing, buttons and trim) is all done!

I'll be back later this week with a sewing update.
