Knitted Costume for Winter Sports, 1922

Today I’m sharing a freebie knitting pattern! This pattern originally published in The Modern Priscilla magazine in the November, 1922 issue.  The pattern is for size 36-38 bust,  and includes the jumper, knickers, cap, cape-scarf, stockings (size 9), and gauntlet gloves (size 6).  The pattern says:

“Clad in trim knitted togs from her bonnie head to her twinkling feet is the jaunty lass who queens it over this winter’s carnivals.  Don’t envy her smart, comfortable top-to-toe sports outfit just- make one like it.”

  If any of you are knitting whizzes, please share what you make from this pattern! I’d love to see!  Click on any of the images for a larger version to save or print.

    How enchanting! I love these and since I can’t get my hands on a pair of breeches that would be just it :) I have been toying for a while with the idea of having them knitted. I wonder if I should pick a specific type of wool for it to work…
