Crest Sweater: This pattern contains directions to knit, crochet detail, the sweater shown. An interesting design with not just a bottom rib band, but ribbing that runs horizontal across the bodice and arms. The neckline and long sleeve cuffs are also ribbed. And, for an added touch of adornment, there is a crest worked at the upper left in cross stitch. The pattern, vintage 1950 from Modern Needlecraft, is misses size 12, with changes for 14 and 16 in parentheses. This old picture does a poor job representing the sweater detail.
