Vintage 1940s knitting pattern for a man's sleeveless pullover / vest - features a striking Fair Isle design and a V-neckline - original colour pattern

Published by Sirdar (UK) - pattern no. 1164
Small format - dimensions approx. 4 3/4" x 7 1/4" (approx. 12 cm x 18.5 cm) - 8 pages stapled together in leaflet form
Undated but probably dates from the period of paper rationing before and immediately after the Second World War
Colour patterns in this format are highly collectible - as are Fair Isle patterns from this period
As was customary at the time, the instructions are for one size only - to fit a 39" chest.
Intended for use with a relatively fine yarn (vintage UK 3-ply or equivalent) on old UK size 9, 10 and 12 knitting needles/pins

In good condition. Staples have started to rust a little. A few small scuffs here and there. Small pencil annotation to front. But no major flaws. Binding is tight. No stains or tears

You are purchasing the ORIGINAL paper pattern, not a copy (and not the finished garment)
Any questions, please feel free to ask
