An authentic World War II knitting pattern for men's military/airforce style bomber hat and rugged cable sweater. Amazingly contemporary designs and a really classic pattern. The sweater is made to fit one size only (see details in picture) and both hat and sweater are knitted in DK (worsted weight) yarn.

Clear written instructions are given (no charts). If you can knit basic rib the hat will be easy for you. The sweater is a little more complex as it uses cable stitches, but if you know how to knit cable it should be straightforward.

Materials:
Sweater: 1lb 5 oz UK Double Knitting yarn (approx 12 x 50g balls)
UK no. 7 and no 8 needles (4.5mm and 5mm)
set of 4 double pointed no. 8 needles (5mm) and stitchholder
Measures 40 inches around chest
Length: 28 inches

Hat: 5 oz UK Double Knitting Yarn (approx 3 x 50g balls)
UK no. 7 needles (4.5mm) and 3 buttons
Measures 20 inches around brim
