Description: Classic plain V-neck in a range of sizes for men or women with an interesting cable along the line of the raglan sleeve (so maybe not so perfectly plain).
The term "treble knitting" in this era usually refers to a yarn which was one size larger than double knitting - so more like Aran or worsted - however the tension and needles required for this yarn imply that it is a chunky equivalent.
The pattern has holes punched at the side for use in a loose-leaf binder, otherwise it is in moderately good condition.
