Vintage Hand Knit Cardigan Sweater Wool Nordic Fair Isle M

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage hand knit cardigan sweater featuring Nordic style patterned bright multicoloured yoke and cuffs.  The colours are in primary tones of blue, yellow, red and black.  The off-white body has a raised vertical bar pattern through out.  There is no label, but the multiple coloured knit originated in Fair Isle, Scotland - I can’t say, however, where this sweater was made as there are no labels.  It has raglan style sleeves, almost like a dropped shoulder sleeve that is attached to the yoke, and a ten button closure.  I would guess that it dates to the 1960s,  This knit cardigan sweater is made for a medium to large size (US size 40/42), but please note the following measurements for fit: 

Shoulders:  18” across, estimated

Sleeves: 33” from the mid neck to the cuff, following the contour of the shoulder

Sleeve inseam:  17” long

Chest:  40” around, taken under the arm, unstretched

Bottom:  35” around the bottom band, unstretched, stretches out to 42”

Length:  25 1/2”, measured flat

This hand knit cardigan is in very clean condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odour.

Nice strong colours on this knit cardigan - attractive vintage winter sweater!
