I like this pattern's stylish photo which has a distinct attempt at French sixties chic; once again Patons add to the polished look using (I believe) Jean Shrimpton in another early modelling role. [We won't dwell on the male model - or his pose, which I suppose to be an attempt at humour].

Description: They have used Jean Shrimpton to model this rather plain V-neck cardigan; she did appear in Patons Stitchcraft magazines in the early sixties, and it's easy to see how she soon became the world's most highly paid model - so strikingly lovely. All of the the impact of this design is achieved through the tweedy yarn. Bracken Tweed was an exceedingly nice yarn - you need to substitute something like Rowan Felted Tweed - but check your tension - as you can see, Bracken was a fairly dense DK whereas Rowan's is equally lovely but a lighter weight DK.

Description: Loose-fit one-size dolman sweater with colourwork knitted from a chart.

This is a technically interesting knit which requires you to follow the instructions carefully, and some experience would be useful I think.
