Rainy Day Knitting

I have a bit of a problem when it comes to vintage patterns. Just ask my poor Brian and cat who have to live with them all! It's a gross, rainy, grey day in Toronto, so I thought I'd share a favourite from my collection with you knitters out there. May as well get some knitting done while we're snuggled up inside.

I picked up this copy of Minerva Style Book (volume 28) at the fantastic 69 Collective. I did some digging, and as far as I can tell the copyright has lapsed on this 1935 pattern booklet. I love the open shoulders on the top of this pattern. The hat pattern is also included, which is all kinds of nifty.
