This week we have classic vintage make sent in by Woman’s Weekly reader Heather Mountjoy. Heather’s mum knitted the Fair-Isle jumper for her dad back when the pattern was originally featured in our 8th April 1950 issue. What a great find! Thanks Heather for sending this into us!
“I thought you might like to see a photograph of my dad, Harry Breeze, wearing the Fair-Isle slipover which featured in your vintage pattern pullout recently. In the photograph he is shown with my mum, Pauline Breeze, who knitted the jumper for him. Dad passed away several years ago, but mum is 84 and is still reading Woman’s Weekly and still knitting. She thought she recognised the jumper when she saw the pullout! I found this lovely photo of dad, mum (sporting a Fair-Isle cardi she also knitted) with her auntie and cousin.”
