A few weeks back I came across this knitting pattern in a shop- really I was flicking through hoping for a more fruitful reward, but I just found two pullover patterns for the chaps instead- this 70's creation and a rather lovely 30's one (see below!)
|Now he's what I would call dashing |
and the pullovers not bad either!
I normally stay well clear of the 70’s patterns, but I broke my own boundaries just for you, my dear readers (don’t tell me I never spoil you!) as I thought it was something interesting to show on me blog!
What’s so interesting about a dog-eared, dodgy old pattern I hear you cry? Well, my little chickadees scroll down and all will be revealed…….
Tada- look familiar?
Well yes Tupney it does! And?
Tis the same pattern, but if you will just scroll down a little further…..
…Tada x 50….. I have the pullover as well! I bought this from a flea a few years back and also, pre finding both the ‘47 and the 70’s pattern. Pretty cool don’t you think? I did think at the time that it looked familiar but as usual nothing really clicked! How’s chances eh! Actually pretty high as I know another fella who owns the same pullover.... must have been a popular design I guess. Shows how nothing is really new...
Inside the 70's pattern it reads :- It's Cool, man!
Fair Isle from the thirties is back! Designed on mini style lines for trend-setters, or knit a size larger for more traditional looks. Reprint of a very old favourite.
Also as and added bonus....
A knitting pattern that has gone too far!
A health vest is one thing, but health pants? This is when knitting for men shouldn't be allowed.
