Description: Wonderful man's aran-style cardigan in chunky weight yarn. It has pockets - not only in the "normal" position on the front but also if you look carefully at the photo, there is a breast pocket as well (first time I have seen this on a knitted cardigan).
The styling of the photo is interesting, with the jacket modelled by Freddie Garrity - of Freddie and the Dreamers - in a shirt and tie (presumably to meet the standards for the bar in the clubhouse later as he is complete with golf clubs) and wearing his serious specs to give him the cool Hank Marvin look.
The photo has surface creasing and a definite visible vertical and horizontal crease. However, the instructions are in good condition.
