A one-off knitted sample from A Stitch in Time Volume 1 knitted in 100% pure cotton using a now discontinued cotton from Rowan Yarns, in a soft blue-ish green with contrasting edging worked in a deep navy blue. Light and Lovely is knitted in a number of pieces all in an attractive lace stitch, which are then sewn together to complete the garment. The front and back yokes are knitted separately and feature an elegant navy blue piping at the edges and a back opening with six vintage buttons fastened with crocheted button loops. The ribbed neckband is finished with two bows sewn in place. The sleeves are typical of the 1940s, finishing slightly above the elbow and featuring box head sleeve caps which can be worn with or without shoulder pads.
The sample was knitted to fit 36-38 inch (92-97 cm) chest and has a finished chest dimension of 37 inches (94 cm) and a length to underarm of 14 inches (35.5 cm).
