Jean Todd wrote on the message board: 'You may have seen this picture of Billy before but the pattern to knit it was offered by Marty magazine in the early 60s I think, so I sent off for it. I found the pattern whilst sorting through a lot of old paperwork. Unfortunately I have ticked off pattern rows and written numbers for the rib etc but it wasn't like the usual knitting pattern. It looks as though it has just been typed out (probably on stencil paper) and put through a duplicator (the Gestetner sort, possibly?) and obviously to save on the paper, it has been printed on both sides.

'I knitted my sweater in the same colours as Billy's - main colour white and pattern black; but I made one for the lad next door in main colour black and pattern white.'

It's may be indicative of how slim Billy was because the measurements are 34-36 (37-39) inch bust or chest.'

Jean has very kindly supplied copies of the patterns, which can be downloaded from the links below.  If anyone knits one...please send a photograph.

I've no information on where this was first published, but Billy modelled this cardigan.  Pat Young (pictured right, wearing it) sent a copy of the pattern to Jean Todd, who kindly forwarded one to me.
