The down side of knitting vintage patterns is that, owing to the fine gauge of the yarn, the projects take longer than many modern American women are willing to spare. This project - chosen for the bird (stork? Pelican?) motif - was knit on US size 2 needles and took an unbearably long time to complete. Still, the very act of slowing the pace of my knitting down had an pacifying effect ...and, on a positive note - though published well before the Zimmermann 70's, this sweater is knit in one piece, top-down, leaving only the lower halves of the sleeves to be sewn.
I will add a link to the pattern HERE, along with the with my adaptations for knitting this vintage piece in our modern world.
