David Bowie cardigan a knitting success

Mum and I love to knit. We have been working on this cardigan for quite a while and just finished it this weekend. It’s a bit big – I want to get a few winters out of it.

Any ideas for who we should knit next?

Here are some of our other knitting projects:

Michael Jackson “Who’s Bad” jumper

Mother’s Day gif(t)

Ribbed cardie

Purple Ziggie Stardust/David Bowie/Aladdin Sane pattern drawn by mummy; cardie pattern adapted from Moda Impact Issue 5; magenta skinny jeans by Cotton On Kids; purple sparkly trainers by Converse Kids.

    Way to knit Karla and Marshall! The Ziggy Stardust sweater is amazing and looks great on Marshall!

    Gosh, I struggle to knit with one colour. Trying to come up with a witty suggestion for the next project but failing miserably.

      Aww – it’s OK I have a few ideas up my sleeve. Knitting with multiple colours is easy once you get the hang of it, just keeping all the balls from getting tangled up is the trickiest part.

      Ah great suggestions – Rufio’s hair is pretty much like a bigger version of Ziggy’s! My top pick of those options is Totoro – that would be soooo cute.

      yay and I just learned a new word (I had to Google “manligan”, aka manly cardigan). Glad you like the gif – it is my favourite gif to date (and I do lots of gifs ha) x

    That is an excellent cardigan! The baby now has more style than most people I know (including myself!). :)

    Nice project with an iconic image. Love it.
    (One quibble: That was actually Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane” persona. Ziggy came earlier.)

      Yes we were torn as this is the Aladdin Sane cover, but Bowie himself has described “A lad insane” as simply an evolution of Ziggy/”Ziggy goes to America.” It seems to be quite a debate, so we are going to just call this our David Bowie cardie :)

    ooooh, I sure hope you come up with the Bowie face template soon– my husband wants it on a sweater for himself! :D

      Thank you for the reminder – I really do mean to make it into a file that people can follow. Have just been so busy! I have your email so will be happy to send it to you. I’m thinking within the next 6 weeks is a realistic goal :)
