Description: This pattern is in a woefully poor condition (not shown in the picture) but my excuse for including it is the cute styling of the boy in his cowboy outfit - and the period aspect of his appearing with his toy gun, (he looks just like Colin, across the road... I wonder what happened to him?).
The sweater itself is a rather nice rib/moss pattern, and, if you feel inclined to knit it, although the pattern instructions are a little worn, they are quite readable; I will also supply an enhanced version of the pattern instructions.
