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 chap in a shirt and tie (presumably to meet the standards for the bar in the clubhouse later) and his serious specs giving him a cool Hank Marvin look.
The photo has surface creasing and a definite visible vertical and horizontal crease. However, the instructions are in good condition.
