All finished and just like the one in the book! It's a relief to finally do a "completed" knitting post, especially a completed vintage project. I've been knitting too many things in 4ply wool, everything takes forever and it feels like a long time since I finished anything. A baby jumper is not so bad, this was a pretty quick knit at 7sts per inch.
The pattern is from the No. 2 Viyella Knitting Book originally published in the 1920s. The original pattern is knit in the "gansey" method - knit in the round to the armholes, grafted at shoulders, sleeves picked up and knit down in the round.
I knit exactly to pattern with a couple of small mods:
Pattern as written seems to be two rows short in the front, I added in an extra two rows in pattern before casting off for the neck.
Only knit 12 rounds in pattern on cuffs to match the hem and to have less bulky turnbacks on the sleeves (and I got bored).
