It is difficult to find the sweaters intact – most of them have varying degrees of holes, the wool just doesn’t hold up. The skirt is easy to find, as is the yarn bowl. The tiny scissors and “book” can be hard to find.

The gray flannel skirt has a back snap closure and the cloth tag for this ensemble is located in the cardigan sweater. The cardigan also has tiny gold bead buttons. The shell sweater has snaps in the back.

This classic ensemble was made for 3 years, from 1959 to 1962. In 1963 the same ensemble was issued in royal blue and called “Knitting Pretty”, in 1964 a pink version was added.
