I've been digging through my vintage Girl Scout collection of books and memorabilia and came across this sweater pattern. It comes from a vintage Girl Scout handbook for the older girl. It appears that after the sweater is knit, the trefoil design is cross stitched on.
What makes this a neat project is that you could cross stitch the pattern onto a ready-made sweater if you aren't a knitter.
This would also be a great project to do with younger Scouts too. Have the girls practice their cross stitch embroidery on simple grid fabric as they learn to sew.
A terrific knitting and cross stitch pattern from a vintage Girl Scout handbook ready for Scouts today!
