Famous Knits: Mad Men Favorites

Written by Sarah. Posted in famous knits

How about that second-to-last episode, guys? It’s not a secret that Mad Men is one of my favorite shows on television. (I named my first sweater pattern after one of my favorite episodes). I’m gearing up for a real cry-fest in anticipation of the final episode. What will I do once it’s gone?

One of my favorite things about the show’s ruthless attention to detail are Janie Bryant’s amazing costumes. If you’re a Mad Men obsessive like me, you are reading Tom and Lorenzo’s Mad Style every Wednesday to delve into the visual clues Janie is giving us through period clothing alone.

I thought I’d go back through the seasons and pick out a few of my favorite pieces of knitwear. This post will contain spoilers. Maybe you should get watching!

Helen Bishop’s Cardigan
I’ve been in love with Helen Bishop’s mustard cardi since it appeared in the first season. It’s a great piece with little garter stitch texture throughout. I think this ginger needs to borrow some of Helen’s style.

Peggy’s Mary Tyler Moore Hat
Tom and Lorenzo have pointed out that this hat is an ironic reference to Mary Tyler Moore Show’s opening credits. I love it and I love Pegs.

Betty’s Colorwork Sweater
Remember this gem Betty wore in this pivotal episode? It looks like it might be handmade. What do you guys think?

Don’s Cardigan
I wrote about Don’s cardigan here. Still in love.

Peggy’s Cardigan
Peggy’s wardrobe has really picked up over the past few seasons, huh? If you want to get some of her style, check out this pattern.

It’s almost all over. I’m going to miss this show so much. Let’s have a moment of silence and watch these gifs of Peggy being a boss.
