Free Vintage Knitting Pattern from WW2: Men’s Fair Isle Pullover Bestway Leaflet 1524

Bestway 1524 free knitting pattern men'sThis pattern is so flimsy, it’s like holding a piece of silk. It must have been knitted and carried around during the process. Here is a fair isle that doesn’t look too compicated in the chart. I love the text on page one, which firmly dates it as during WW2 or just after. (I think it would be more than 3 pence, aka 3D, if it was after WW1).

Gaily Patterned Pullover

He’ll appreciate a riot of colour after the uniformity of khaki or blue.

Yarn is 3 ply and it’s for a 38 inch chest. The colours are light grey for the background, with dark blue, green and white.
