vintage knitting pattern: 'carefree sloppy sue sweater'


Isn't that just the most AWFUL name for a jumper pattern??  EEEEP! 
I know what they're thinking, but to my (modern) ears that sounds terrible ;)

Be that as it may ... it's a great, simple design.  Actually, I might have to convince Anita to knit me this one (if she can stop laughing!) ;)

  1. I was picturing a grandpa-style sweater with that name - but that's a very fetching pattern and not at all sloppy! :D

  2. Not sloppy at all! Were did they get that from? Perhaps the casual style? I think it looks great :)

    1. Yeah, I would say because it's 'casual' - I guess they didn't do casual so much back then!
