i've been noticing a few completely adorable sweaters popping up here and there over the internet. these perfect intarsia animal sweaters are amazing. i love their complete simplicity and quirkiness. especially these fantastic ones of a horse and swan (!)
these adorable sweaters sent me searching through my own knitting patterns, since i've accumulated quite a collection over the years of weird, crazy and mostly absurd knitting patterns. i rediscovered my Knit O Graf knitting book, which has very similar intarsia types of knitting patterns. sometimes with animals, and sometimes with things like sailboats and airplanes. it's true that almost all of these are for children (!) but i think almost all could be adapted for adults. especially just using the graph, enlarge it and put it on a plain sweater pattern.
