Crocheted Sweater: This pattern gives directions to crochet the sweater shown. This pattern was featured in a 1945 Womans Day Mail-Out. The official write-up -- "We selected the smart, practical sweater shown, hoping that everyrone would have yarn remnants on hand in several colors. This one is made in gray, brown and black wool.. The style has many useful features -- it is boxy and bulky enough to use as a jacket for cool summer wather, or with its drawstring waistline bloused. It is perfect over a wool skirt for fall. The close, interesting stitch resembles hand weaving".
