Ward House

Sontag

I had not heard of this garment prior to reading Mia’s interview over at Aspiring Homemaker.  A Sontag (bosom warmer) helps to keep the chest and midsection warm while allowing arm movement.   Looks like something new to knit up for this winter.  From what I’ve read, both men and women wore this garment, though I am sure the mens was less ‘pretty’.

The popular pattern is found here.  Once the current dishcloth is finished, I believe one of these will be ‘on the hook’.  Pictures will be forth coming.
