Description: Great sweater in a fisherman's rib stitch, which makes a lovely warm texture. Perfect for walking the dog - as well as fishing - obviously.
There is the usual vertical crease, and the pattern is a little worn at the front edge with small tears but these do not extend to the instructions which are fully readable.
