Dude/Brideshead Revisited

When smoking was cool, and patterns cost 9pence.
Just unearthed an old pattern that was hiding here in the Jamieson & Smith archive (aka: the random piles of wool goodness that have been untouched for decades). This guy has some style, no? He looks like something from Brideshead Revisited.

The pattern was 'Designed in Shetland for Shetland Wool'. So cool! I'm thinking Jumper weight 2ply in shade 203 (main grey), 36 (navy), 125 (orange), 91 (yellow), FC34 (blue), 1A (white) and 1403 (wine). Many of these colour recipes will be exactly the same - lovely!

  2. Oops, what I was trying to say was: I think so too, do you think it would be an idea to release it as a kit with a free PDF of the pattern?


  3. Oh dear, i have and alien name. Hope I've fixed it...

  4. Wonderful picture! And the pattern seems lovely :))
