Free Vintage Knitting Pattern: 50s Roll Neck

Here is some treasure found today in a secondhand furniture shop on Broadway Market in Hackney. It is in three sizes 34, 36 or 38 inch – yay!

The answer is all sports played in Britain between September and May. It is made by a company called Marriners, which is really annoying as it should be spelled mariners, though I might let them off, as the company is named after R.V. Marriner Spinners.  I’ve been knitting with only 4-ply yarn for months, so a nice DK jumper will be a quick knit for a change. Just have to finish the three things I already have on the go…

The pattern for this jumper is already up on this website here: https://thesunnystitcher.co.uk/2014/04/26/free-vintage-knitting-pattern-50s-roll-neck/ […]
