Girl Scout Sweater Pattern

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!
