The Vintage Knitter

Issue 14 of The Knitter magazine arrived yesterday. Pretty useless to me; the patterns are nearly all for men and they're all horrible anyway. A pretty boy modelling 'Hawke' but I can't think of a teenager who would wear it and as for 'Cartmel', it looks so uncomfortably bunchy under the arms I wouldn't make it for anyone. Then I saw this



and thought, 'Hulloah! Seventies-tastic?' Sure enough, this is a 'revived' Aran pattern from Patons. Now guess what I found in my pattern stash?
