Famous Knits: Mad Men Season Finale

Don’t worry, everyone. There won’t be any spoilers here. About the plot, at least. But if you were hoping to be surprised by the outrageously beautiful cardigan Don Draper wears in the season’s finale…well, spoiler alert.

I caught up on Mad Men before the start of this season. I’m completely hooked and I don’t know what I’ll do now that there’s no Mad Men to watch! And this season was a real roller coaster!

This last episode was filled with beautiful images. But I think this sweater might have been my favorite. My jaw dropped and Jon immediately asked me to find a pattern so I could make one for him. Sorry, no spoilers here. I wasn’t actually listening to anything Megan was saying…I was too busy drooling.

Has anyone else had a hard time finding a truly elegant mens’ shawl collar cardigan pattern? I find they are either too flimsy or too chunky. If you’ve got one that you like, send it my way! I’m itching to cast on for a Don Draper sweater!

Maybe Trudy has a pattern I could borrow. Wonder what she’s working on…

Can’t wait to find out more about this sweater! In the mean time, I will be reading Mad Men Unbuttoned like crazy.

Until next season (fingers crossed)…I love you, Mad Men.

    As soon as I saw the title of this post, I knew it was going to be about Don’s sweater! I audibly gasped when that shot panned over to him. I haven’t done any research, yet, but there MUST be something out there! Maybe something by Jarod Flood?

      I checked through the Brooklyn Tweed patterns and there is a great shawl collar pullover but I couldn’t find a cardigan! Let me know if you find anything and I’ll be sure to post my discoveries here!

    I love a man with a cable knit cardigan. *melt*

    I’ve searched like crazy for one of these, i.e. cable cardigan, wrap! (no buttons), shawl collar.
    Robert Redford used to wear these, too. Someone must have an idea, or at least a pattern.

      The closest pattern I’ve found is Timberline from BT Men. It’s not quite there, though! Surprised how difficult it is to find a pattern like these since they’re so handsome and popular!
