Mens Cardigan: This pattern from American Thread, vintage 1956, is for a men's knitted cardigan, sporting long raglan sleeves, front pockets and bands. It sports a bit of a tweed look for a very distinguished flair. It features the V-neckline with sleeves and banding in a contrasting color. The pattern is sized for men 40 to 46. The instructions are written for size 40, with changes for 42, 44 and 46 shown in parentheses. This pattern is part of a book review - American Thread Star Book 125.
And ... what do you see in this picture that you won't see in todays' pattern cover? Well ... the cigarette, of course.
