Simplicity Knitting Pattern: Who Dah Thunk It?

Look what I found rummaging around in my mom's old pattern books.

This Simplicity knitting pattern is from 1973. I remember my mom making me this knitted and smocked vest. I seem to think it was knit in brown.

Does anyone know if Simplicity who are known for sewing patterns still produce patterns for knitting? If so, I wonder if they still include this sage advice:

Simplicity was serious about simplicity. If only lace shawl patterns were this clear!

We can dream.

Happy knitting!

Wow, that's an oldie but a goodie!

What really funny is that knitting a vest like that would be stylish again.

That is a cool looking pattern! If they don't still make knitting patterns, they should.
