Knitting for the Dude

A while back I was browsing through the plethora of patterns on Ravelry when I came across a sweater just like the Dude's from the Big Lebowski. The pattern is free and I've got a hankering to knit it for N.

Me: Would you wear this sweater if I knit it for you?
N: Umm...that looks different than the Dude's sweater. Isn't the collar different?
Me: Yeah, I could make it more like a shawl collar. But would you wear it?
N: I don't want you to knit something for me just so I can wear it and you can laugh at me.
Me: I won't laugh at you, it's an awesome sweater. Would you wear it?
N: grumble grumble grumble

I'm taking that as a no. Is that going to stop me? Probably not. The only problem right now is the vast quantity of eco wool that the pattern calls for and the fact that I've got other knitting obligations. Maybe this Fall?


  1. Dude, it's just awesome! I vote yes when you have time :)

  2. I offered to knit that for Scott. He said it would be too hot. BOO!

  3. I thought about knitting that for Chris, too--but decided (as you probably remember) to just buy him a vintage Dude sweater on eBay.
