Hannah Fettig, author of the upcoming new book Closely Knit, shares with us her movie inspired knitting from the movie, About a Boy. This sweater is from the dead duck day scene and you can see the sweater in this music video for the movie by Badly Drawn Boy.
This sweater was a special request from my cousin’s brother. He had been trying to find someone to knit the sweater that Marcus wears in About a Boy. When he found out I knit, he begged me to knit it for him. I knew exactly which sweater he was talking about, and was totally up for it. The model in the photograph is my friend Brian Emerson. I took the photos just before I shipped it off to Stephen in New Jersey. Apparently he wears it every day!
