Oh dear. Oh my. Oh, look what pattern I found for free on Ravelry…
[A vintage-style beauty. Maybe knitting is worth it after all…]
The pattern is for a size 36 bust (so I’d only have to grade up a “bit”, grrr.) The pattern is free via Knit Wiki. It’s in lots of queues, but no finished projects, so no notes re. how good the pattern is. I’ve no experience with vintage knitting patterns, but have heard they’re as dicey as vintage sewing patterns. The pattern instructions look dense, indeed.** But oh… the rewards!
**Does anyone remember in Harry Potter book when Dumbledore says he likes to read the knitting patterns in the muggle magazines? That cracks me up. I like to read them too!
