We’re snowed and iced in here in the ATL. At our house, that means sledding and hot chocolate and, for me, knitting while we watch the Winter Olympics. Such wonderful family time! I love watching the figure skating (love the new team event!), hockey, snowboarding and all the skiing events. And, along with knitters around the world, I have been paying attention to the all the lovely knitting views in Sochi.
First, the US Olympic Team. The Opening and Closing Ceremony Cardigan designed by Ralph Lauren has already sold out despite the “Ugly Christmas Sweater” reviews. With a hipster, grandpa-style collar and button front, this sweater is All-American. And the hats! Gotta love the beanie and the ear flap hat!
Other knitworthy Olympic wear includes:
Canada – love the knitted hats and mittens with the very cool toggle jackets
Andorra – love the fair isle inspired sweaters
Poland – love the snowflakes and the ombre
Latvia – oh, the chevrons!
Belarus – love the stranded colorwork of their hats and scarves inspired by their flag
Slovakia – more lovely colorwork
Norway’s ski beanie is truly knittable and the colors are awesome:
And for real sit down and knit at the Olympics inspiration – the Finnish Snowboard Coach actually knitting!
