Vintage Knits: 1950s Top and Kneesocks


Isn’t this the cutest little top you ever saw? It’s from College Knits for Men and Women, published in 1958.

I wonder if I could make the collar look as tidy as it does in this picture. Here’s the pattern, if you’d like to try. I’ve included the pattern for the kneesocks as well.

    It’s the part of the instructions for the sleeves. I’m really excited to finish this top but I can’t find the pattern anywhere else. Thank you!

  2. Sorry for the omission, Marilyn! I’ve uploaded page 23 now.

  3. Thanks so much! I love your blog!

    Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you.

  5. Hi Marilyn. For some reason, the link to the photo file was being replaced by the photo at the top of the post. I think I’ve fixed it now. Give it a try.

  6. Yep, it works now! Thanks a lot!
