I like this pattern's stylish photo which has a distinct attempt at French sixties chic; once again Patons add to the polished look using (I believe) Jean Shrimpton in another early modelling role. [We won't dwell on the male model - or his pose, which I suppose to be an attempt at humour].

Description: They have used Jean Shrimpton to model this rather plain V-neck cardigan; she did appear in Patons Stitchcraft magazines in the early sixties, and it's easy to see how she soon became the world's most highly paid model - so strikingly lovely. All of the the impact of this design is achieved through the tweedy yarn. Bracken Tweed was an exceedingly nice yarn - you need to substitute something like Rowan Felted Tweed - but check your tension - as you can see, Bracken was a fairly dense DK whereas Rowan's is equally lovely but a lighter weight DK.

Description:
Needlewoman and Needlecraft was an amalgamation of two other magazines: Needlecraft, (first produced 1907), and The Needlewoman, (first produced 1919). It was a quarterly magazine, and the first issue was published in January 1940. A few issues may have been missed during WWII, hence this issue is number "115".
In the 1970s it dropped the Needlecraft name, and became simply "Needlewoman"; then during 1977 it was incorporated with Stitchcraft monthly magazine. Because of this, the numbering systems can appear confusing, with 1970s editions appearing to predate those of the 1930s - however the content usually makes the era unmistakeable.
