FPF: Bestway Feather and Fan summer sweater

This week's free pattern is for this lovely late '50s short sleeved jumper by Bestway, in a sweet lacey feather and fan stitch pattern.

The pattern is in two sizes, for a 34 and 36 inch bust. It is worked in 4 ply yarn on old UK size 10 and 11 needles.


  1. Thanks for the pattern, my mother used to wear these in the '80s, knitted by herself in thin silk - they still look great and I love them!
    P.S. The parcel arrived, thank you again for the giveaway!
    Cheers, Mary

    1. You're welcome! Hope you enjoy your prize :)

  2. Is there a way to make the print larger?
    thank you . I have been looking for this pattern for ages.

  3. Stunning! Thank you for sharing! I'd love to make on up in rose pink, just like the cover image. :) ❤

  4. Hello! Do you still have this pattern and am I able to download or purchase a copy. My nan, my mum and myself have all knitted this in various colours - I actually wore my nan's white one at the weekend! I would LOVE to knit it again..if you have it still? Kathryn x

  5. Great pattern, thanks. Could you please tell me what the gauge is 11 stitches for 1 1/2 or is it 1 3/4''? I can't see it clearly, thanks.
