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.

"Triple knitting" 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. Sirdar produced a clutch of patterns for their Candytwist yarn - many of them featuring classic straight sixties jacket/skirt combinations, and all plain to show off the tweedy texture in the yarn.

Description: Wonderful man's aran-style cardigan in chunky weight yarn. It has pockets - not only in the "normal" position on the front but also if you look carefully at the photo, there is a breast pocket as well (first time I have seen this on a knitted cardigan).
The styling of the photo is interesting, with the chap in a shirt and tie (presumably to meet the standards for the bar in the clubhouse later) and his serious specs giving him a cool Hank Marvin look.
The photo has surface creasing and a definite visible vertical and horizontal crease. However, the instructions are in good condition.

Description: Another delightful pattern very much of its time; this roll-neck with short or no sleeves was a typical look.
Generally in good condition - but there is a small tear at the top and a rather larger one at the bottom. The writing is obscured but discernible.
The yarn type is not easy to infer from the pattern itself as the required needles are rather large for a 4ply - but I have some Celtic spun and it is a Shetland 4 ply type in 50g balls; the Shadow spun seems to be similar angora type yarn but from the yarn quantities clearly a different sized ball.

Price: £2.00 (includes 2nd class postage within UK
- check "prices" section for more information)

Description: This pattern is in a woefully poor condition 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. The sweater itself is a rather nice rib/moss pattern, and, if you feel inclined to knit it, the pattern instructions are a little worn but quite readable. The wear shows up worst in the picture.

Description: Classic football supporter's scarf from days of yore - or simply a striped scarf - mittens - gloves - and a man's tie. The construction of the scarf is not one I have seen before; it is knitted on 2 needles using a slip-stitch which results in a tube which is turned inside out to form a double thickness stocking stitch scarf.
I knitted my brother a tie, once; it was probably my first knitting project. He even wore it - which makes me feel very warm towards him....

Price: £3.00 (includes 2nd class postage within UK

Description: This looks like the sort of pattern a man would want to wear; plain with all the effect achieved through the tweedy yarn. Bracken Tweed was an exceedingly nice yarn - I made my brother-in-law a plain roll neck when I was about 13 - 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: Yellow man's V-neck slipover with various patterning.
This is an early pattern with the ubiquitous centre crease, and knitted in Sirdar Supurl. I do not know this yarn and I am not able to guess the type from the quantities or needles, and there no other yarn options to help. My best guess is that it is 4ply or a light weight double knit.
