Spring Magic

Spring Magic

This 1945 pattern and its celebratory title is a bit later than "Spring Magic" (1942), when the outcome of the war was still uncertain, but it amused me that the maneuver of "slip one and knit one and pass the slipped stitch over" which was shared by the women taking shelter during an air raid can also be found in the lacy jumper! Simple pleasures!

This pattern is available free from the V&A Museum -- https://www.vam.ac.uk/articles/1940s-knitting-patterns
