Italian Greyhound Sweater (Pattern at: members.aol.com/Graceleb/pattern.html).
Not sure who made this, but it's great!
I made this monkey from this pattern: http://www.save-on-crafts.com/motoymoknpru.html
although I diverged a lot. The body is silk chenille, the face and hands are silk chainette. I stitched the mouth and nose with my hand-reeled silk.

This image shows off my project a little better.

I bought a pattern book called "Brunswick Mostly Male" from an eBay seller in Thunder Bay, Ontario. I just had to share a few of my favorites.
My guess is that the book is from the late 1960's (no publish date but I can just imagine these fashions on the actors in Rowan and Martin's Laugh-in (circa 1968)
This is probably my favorite picture - not because the knit item is so dated but because it truly shows how the times have changed (thank goodness!)
Oh well, I need run - gotta stand by my fireplace with a scotch and soda and a Marlboro!
This is described as a wind-cheater in the 1960's pattern book. It basically the neck part of a sweater to be worn under someting else. Clever, eh?
