In any event, I hereby throw down the gauntlet. I present to you....
It also makes nice use of the superchunky yarn most knitters have on hand- I myself couldn't resist buying some (so large...so textural!) but had no idea what to apply it to. Most of the Vogue Knitting stuff that utilizes large yarns is so patently ridiculous it's just DARING you to spend time and energy making it, forget wearing it out in public. So, here's a quaint lil' charmer with some nice neck detail. I hope to see myriad examples of it in the near future.
At the behest of readers who don't wish to go blind just yet, I've typed the pattern into a legible, readable, copy & paste-able version for your printing joy. No no, don't thank me, thank the person who preserved these lovely books (but you can thank me too).
