Magnificently Silly Knitting Project of the Week: Miko and Robbie’s Farm Sweaters
Miko, co-owner of Amy’s LYS, The Purple Purl, loves an interesting knitting project. And boy, her latest one definitely qualifies!
Meet “The Farm Sweater”. Based on the “Pastoral Pullover” pattern from the 1979 knitting book “Wild Knitting“, it’s a sculpture more than a garment.
Many knitters got involved, making pom-poms, i-cord and other embellishments to complete the scene.
Not one to be outdone, friend of The Purple Purl Robbie decided to get in on the game, too. He wanted a sweater, too!
When they were complete, Miko and Robbie visited local Riverdale Farm for an appropriately-themed photoshoot. It’s worth clicking through to see the details… the sweaters have fields complete with crops, little dolls to represent the farmers, forests – and, naturally, sheep.
Miko and Robbie, we love you, your sweaters and your willingness to have fun.
