Some days I want to be romantic. Most days I wear something artsy. Once in a while, I want to be preppy.
I’m fortunate enough to have all these styles already in my wardrobe. However, one of these amazing Hermes tennis-themed sweater dresses would make a great addition. Way too nice to actually wear on the tennis courts, it is a really fun item to own. V-neck Great Gatsby sweaters remind me of a fun time gone by.
So, I want to extend a very warm ‘thank you’ or ‘danke’ to this German magazine ‘Fur Sie’ (for YOU), that offers us a free pattern to make a sweater just like the Hermes in this picture, but of course, at a tiny fraction of the cost.
The Hermes designer Jean Paul Gaultier actually designed these sweater dresses as part of its Spring collection. However, the way I go about making large clothing projects like this is that I better start several months ahead of time. So, now would be a great time to begin, as also the type of yarn I’ll need might even be on sale.
Btw. this would also make a great XMAS gift and you still have over a full month to knit it if you start soon.

I have a feeling that if you have some knitting experience (and really want to make this Great Gatsby sweater, you will actually be able to figure it out. If not, leave me a comment and I’ll see if I can help you. My German is a tat rusty but I used to be able to speak it.
