Free Knitting Pattern – For Pipe Smoking Gents – a shawl collar cardigan

Here’s a little number from the 1950’s. I’ve seen a few men wearing this style recently, so I’m guessing it’s back in fashion. I certainly have the same pattern for ladies from the 1970s too (some 70s patterns will be hitting the site soon, I’ve had a buying spree and am having a mini-phase of loving that decade). Also I can never resist a knitting pattern in which a man is doing something manly, like smoking a pipe, owning a dog, leaning on something or doing some science.

This comes in several sizes – chest measurements 34, 36, 38, 40, 42 and 44 inches. See it on Google Docs here.
