A true “Sweater Girl” pattern. Lana Turner was probably wearing this sweater when she was discovered at Schwab’s.

From the pattern: Germantown Zephyr is described as:
A 4-fold yarn (4 twisted strands) of high-quality virgin wool. Approximately 80 yards to the ounce. It is available in Ombre (variegated shades) as well as solid colors.

Note: My skeins of Germantown Zephyr weigh 1 oz. and have 125 yds. It is knitting up at 20-21 stitches/4 inches on a size 6 US needle. The yardage requirements are based on the pattern notes of 80 yds./1 oz., and may be somewhat skimpy.
