Quite taken by all the possible knitting patterns in PBS' Masterpiece Theater's new 2020 broadcast of "All Creatures Great and Small," featuring the life of Yorkshire veterinarian, James Herriot, I went searching. There are countless sources for vintage patterns used as recipes for vests and sweaters worn in the mid-1930's when this charming story takes place. Cropped cardigans and pullovers, multi-colored Faire Isles, either knit as vests or worn with Peter Pan collars, jumpers, and the like, have roared back into fashion in the past few years, and there are modern patterns to be found with that vintage look.
