Knit a Sweater for Ken®!

July 1, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

We heard that Peter sewer extraordinaire from MalePattenBoldness has a weakness for the ever iconic Ken® doll by Mattel. Here are some swingin’ free knit patterns fromClothes for Fashion Model Dolls (Hilda, 1963) for that handsome all-American dude, courtesy of the fabulous folks at VintageKnitting. We are particularly enamored of this bulky turtleneck pullover sweater, and would love to see it made up in a hip-tastic heathered charcoal grey yarn.
