This is such a fun sweater! You can knit as specified holding 3 colors

together, or you can knit it as a solid color. It's hard to find these things in the thrift shop, so just make one... you get the style you want, and you get to pick the color and size.

This listing is for the knitting pattern only. It is a .pdf file that is available for immediate download after checkout.
This pattern is originally from Spinnerin, Volume 167, published in 1964. This is no longer in circulation, so in order to make it available for more vintage loving knitters, I am transcribing the instructions exactly as written in the original pattern book and offering them here.

Directions are for VINTAGE Women's size Small (32-34), Medium (36-38) and Large (40-42). There is no size chart in this issue, but the pattern specifies these body measurement for the sizes:
At Bustline - 33(37-43)
