Description: V-neck sweater with chevron eyelet pattern panels and matching gored skirt in double knitting weight yarn.
The pattern is in generally good condition with the usual vertical crease and a few working notes - including a note on the back in pencil referencing works by Beethoven - but there is also a rather charming note: A very smart alpaca suit - I feel very proud of myself!
