Good afternoon readers!
Remember the post I did recently ‘Oh, for the Love of…Bed Jackets and Pajama Dogs‘? Well, today I’m going to post some patterns so you can knit your very own bed sweater or shawl. I’m a knitting novice myself and hope to one day be good enough to create something like these.
I have several knitting pattern books from the 1930s to the early 60s and will feature them on this blog. If there is a particular kind of pattern you’re looking for, let me know and I’ll see if I have it.
1930s Bed Sweaters
Three different styles below, with the patterns to download, Knitting Pretty: 1930s Bed Sweaters (pdf). One shrug, one shawl and one full bed sweater. Enjoy!
If you make one of these lovelies, do let me know and share photos!
Update: there’s also a great 1956 bed sweater pattern here.
