Reindeer Sweaters

I took some Christmassy knitting patterns from the Guild collection to the meeting last Tuesday.  Most of them featured reindeer - they were evidently a popular motif in the late 1940s and the 1950s.  (Although some of the 'reindeer' look more like elk, and some don't look very much like any real animal.)  Here are some of the patterns I found. Unlike the cartoon Rudolph-the-red-nosed-reindeer sweaters that are in the shops this year, you could wear these throughout the winter, not just at Christmas.
