Description: Small booklet of designs as pictured. This is a lovely set - and not only for the classic designs. It features wonderful early photos of Roger Moore; for all the ribbing (no pun intended) he had to put up with in the 60s and 70s he is clearly the look to which to aspire (although here he is having to adopt the cloak of a solid "dependable" - and older - man).
Features: "Cable pattern from Normandy" (DK); "Waistcoat for a live wire" (4 ply);"Executive Type" (3 ply and also with sleeveless option in addition to the long sleeves in the photo); "Classic Pullover" (DK also with a sleeveless version ).
The pattern is in good condition.
