Free Vintage Knitting – Men’s Socks Patons & Baldwin 137

I think this might be from the 1950’s, judging from the picture on the back of the other patterns you could buy. I’ve noticed 1940’s male models for knitting patterns always look at the camera. I imagine they were amateurs, as all the young hunks had to join the army. The young hunk on the back page has the far off stare of a professional knitwear model. On the other hand he’s standing in front of a aeroplane, so perhaps it’s a war time pattern.
