Knit a winning sweater!
If you watched the second Presidential Debate, you know the winner was a certain red sweater.
It’s already sold out on Amazon, but as knitters, we can make our own! So here are a few knit sweaters for men that we think would be great tributes to the The Red Sweater:
Kathy Zimmerman’s Bastille Sweater is gorgeous, with it’s cables and moss stitch panels. Guys will be be right at home in this beauty.
The Timber Sweater by Rebecca Blair is shawl-collar goodness. The allover textured stitch is simple and masculine, but adds lots of character. And it would be so snazzy in red!
Inspired by the casual men’s sweater jackets of the 1950s, Ann Budd’s Cambridge Jacket uses placed ribs for fit and knitterly detail. This style stands the test of time; it’s as stylish now as it was in the 50s.
Meghan Babin set out to design a sweater that any guy would want—the result is the Cotswold Henley, a rugged yet sophisticated sweater with touches of textured stitches and a classic Henley style.
The super-popular chevron pattern makes an appearance on Ann Budd’s Hero Pullover. A short, zippered placket at the neck gives you room to breathe. I would love to see this one in red!
Choose one of these and knit it up for yourself, or your guy! And please, knit it in red!
