Knitted Vest: This knitted vest can be made either of Knitting Worsted, for a wool vest, or of four strands of Mercerized Crochet and Knitting Cotton held together for a cotton vest. It is worked in a very easy pattern stitch with a double cable down each side of front. The vest can be made in two sizes - size 12-14 and size 16-18 - both sizes are included in the one pattern.
This is a Mail Order Design pattern, purchased through newspapers and catalogs. This pattern was marketed as Alice Brooks 7244 in 1944. "The easily knitted double cable stitch makes this a smart version of one of 1944's most popular accessory - a bright knitted vest to wear with blouses and suits. Knitted in no time with Knitting Worsted".
