Who Decided…?

• that cardigans that are too narrow to meet in the front would be flattering on anyone?

• that a sweater in bulky yarn with a neck so wide it leaves the entirety of one’s collar bones exposed would make any sense in any climate anywhere?

• that a woman’s upper arms would be flattered by some big-ass cables running down them?

• that any knitter would be interested in a pattern for a garment that doesn’t look properly fitted—even on a model assisted by a full staff of stylists, make-up artists, lighting technicians, and, of course, a photographer?

Perhaps not the most pressing questions of our time, but having just spent some time browsing patterns, I feel compelled to ask them.

I’m sure I’ve left all sort of things off this little list of questions—feel free to add your own.

  1. * sleeves on sweaters should be designed for women 20+ years younger than me with skinny-ass arms.
