Knitting Pattern Sketches
Next, Peggy has sketched out what each of the three knitting patterns should look like, once completed.
Knitting Pattern No 2
The next knitting pattern is for another belted jumper, as seen in a later sketch. According to the title, it’s meant to fit ’30 in bust’, but presumably it didn’t turn out that good a fit, as she’s crossed out ’30’.
Knitting Pattern No 3
Next in her Switzerland journal, Peggy wrote out some knitting patterns. She may have been writing from the back of the notebook at this point, hence the 3rd pattern is shown first. A page of sketches later on shows that the knitting patterns are three different jumpers, numbers 2 and 3 of which are belted.
November 9th 1936
Diary sub-note: 1918. Abdication of the Kaiser Lorlita’s sister went. Had a letter from Tish. Finnished[sic] the baby’s coat & was knitting & started the back of my jumper. Listened to the wireless after dinner.
