Stitchcraft 1947 Men's Fair Isle Pullover

If proof were needed that good style never goes out of fashion, then this Fair Isle Pullover pattern is certainly that! Thanks to Tupney's super sleuthing we know this pattern has been quite a popular over the years. Originally from the 40's, reprinted in the 70's and now has been copied by Ralph Lauren for his latest 2012 collection!
