Hop over to the Subversive Lesbian Anarchic Knitta blog (yes, you heard that right!) for a look at some perfectly gooorgeous Patons and Baldwins' women's sweater patterns from the 1930's. The copyright has expired (the blog author checked to be certain), so they're in the public domain and safe to copy and share. I'm in love with the "Faith" sweater. It'll take some mathematics to figure out the right gauge and a suitable yarn to use.
ETA: There's a second book of 30's patterns that just went up.
