Awesome vintage cardigan with fold over collar, in mint green with horse design on the back. Thick hand knit cowichan style sweater with zipper front. Large size.

Holy moly, what a sweater. Classic cozy cowichan shape with a flip fold collar and ribbing at the cuffs and hem. Thick wool (or acrylic blend) in pastel minty green (more vibrant than the photos are capturing) with matching green zipper up the front. And then of course the most amazing part - a horse's head knit large on the back, with fancy braided mane. Whoa.

This is a fairly heavy weight sweater, perfect for fall, in a medium to large size. This style makes a nice layer, and can be worn too-big and rolled at the cuffs if you're littler than the size. It is in good condition, with just superficial wear: some lint, and a fair amount of pilling of the yarn, especially at the cuffs. The zipper works great, there are no stains and it smells pleasantly fresh, not musty.

It is hard to give a precise size on this type of top, because it is handmade and also because of stretch. I laid the sweater flat and unstretched on a surface and took the following measurements across it (so for full sizing, double the measurements where appropriate):

armpit to armpit: 22 inches across
nape of neck to bottom hem (at back): 26 inches long
from where collar attaches at shoulder, to end of sleeve cuff: 29 inches long
length of zipper in front (collarbone to bottom hem): 21 inches long

Please feel free to convo me with any questions you might have about this guy.
