There are 2 sets of instructions - one for DK and one for "Tripleknit" which is a worsted or aran weight yarn (between a DK and a bulkier yarn). Triple knitting weights appeared in all the main manufacturers product lines in the 1960s, and, although more or less a worsted weight, it did not seem to become popular enough to gain the traction in the UK to replace double knitting as the "standard" UK yarn weight.
Unfortunately this pattern is again very well-worn - heavy vertical creasing marring the photo but the instructions are very clear.

Description: Traditional cabled sweaters in a choice of yarn weight. The pattern is pretty well-worn with creasing, small tears, sellotape and marks - but this does not affect the instructions. "Tripleknit" is a worsted or aran weight yarn (between a DK and a bulkier yarn) which appeared in all the main manufacturers product lines in the 1960s; although more or less a worsted weight it did not seem to become popular enough to gain the traction in the UK to replace double knitting as the standard yarn.
