A wonderful vintage pattern from the late 1940s to knit a man's V Neck Tank Top or Slipover, using 3 ply (fingering) yarn in 5 colours - one background and 4 contrast colours. This is a genuine Fairisle pattern, in that no more than 2 colours are used in any given row.

Instructions are given in written words row by row, but the pattern also includes a chart. Not for beginners, but fine for anyone who has experience of knitting with more than colour. Fits 39" chest.

PLEASE NOTE YOU ARE BUYING A PDF KNITTING PATTERN - not the tank top or the original pattern.
