Vintage Knits: Short Sleeved Sweater from 1942

I found this copy of Teenage Fashions at an antique mall recently. It was published in 1942, and has a charming wholesomeness about it. The teenage models look like actual people in their teens.

The patterns are also basic enough for a teen beginning knitter. Here is one of the fancier ones, with some tasteful patterning on the yoke and borders.
