That's quite interesting. And surprisingly well designed for a good fit. I have read that the swimsuits of that time stretched when they got wet. Still, it is a lovely bit of historic knitting. Thanks for sharing with us.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Great work. And a wondeerful fit. I imagine it was a fun and satisfying knit. When it warms up, we would like a photo of you modelling it at the beach.

That looks great! Now I want one - I'll have to find the pattern

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence

Well done, Palle.
You model it well too! **wink wink** It looks comfy in all the right places. Where did you get the pattern? I'd love to try making one. But I'd have to find one that was translated into English. It really does look like a fun thing to wear.


Wow! That looks amazing! And fits you perfectly!
