Knitting Pretty: 1950s Nautical Sweater

Good afternoon lovelies!

I’ve picked up my knitting again for the first time in about a year. Luckily, it’s all coming back to me: casting on and off, knit, pearl, etc. Unfortunately, I’m not advanced enough to make any of the bed sweaters in my last ‘Knitting Pretty’ post. However, I shall soldier on and keep at it.

Today, I wanted to treat you with another vintage pattern. This time it’s a 1950s Nautical Sweater, with two flags on it. I’m crazy about all things nautical and sailor, as you probably realize from previous posts (ship jelly belly earrings, Captain swing dress).

I hope to one day be able to knit this gem! If you complete it, do let me know. I’d love to see photos.

Ahoy, Mateys!

  1. What a great idea! Love the images. The top and bag are magnificent! Sadly, I don’t know how to knit. Maybe I’ll crochet a lightweight summer wrap. Crocheting always soothes my nerves. Thanks for the reminder! Theadora (I’m looking forward to seeing progress shots!)

  2. Hi Catwalk and Theadora. I do wish I was better at knitting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to crochet also. I hear it’s easier to learn than knitting. I’ve added a crochet project above, a sailor cap! ;0

    • The sailor cap is so cute! Maybe I’ll give it shot. With a pompom! Crocheting is easier (in my world!). Plus, the TSA will usually let you board the plane with a small plastic needle. Theadora
