The other day I was watching 'Call the Midwife', a TV series set in the late 1950s, and thought, I want a cardigan like that, but lacy. So I was delighted to find the Katharine Hepburn Jacket, designed by Kathy Zimmerman, amongst the free patterns on knittingdaily from Interweave Press. It fits the bill perfectly. As the blurb says, 'Kathy followed typical 1950s styling'. I expect to have to make adjustments to allow for the fact that I'm using handspun wool in place of the specified yarn. But according to my swatch, I should be able to use the figures for the smallest size in order to get the measurements for the second size. I hope it's that simple, but I may need to make adjustments to the armhole and top of the sleeve.
