Free Vintage Knitting Pattern: Men’s late 60s sweaters Sirdar 5084

I just love the neckwear on the left. Here is pait of very functional men’s sweaters from the late 1960s. This is in chest sizes 38, 40, 42 and 44. I also like it’s simplicity in that you cast on the back and after the bottom section of ribbing, it tells you to just keep knitting till it’s the right length. Great for a beginner and I often wear a comfy, slouchy men’s jumper in winter (particularly after Christmas, hiding my extra pounds). Size 8 needles in UK imperial are a 4mm or US 6. Yarn is one of those discontinued mysteries – I think it’s a skinny sort of DK, as you wouldn’t knit aran or 4-ply on 4mm needles and Ravelry argees with me.
