Sweater with, um, interesting detail

This sweater is from the December 2006 issue of the UK magazine Simply Knitting. It is a nice enough sweater from the front, and to 99.9% of humanity, I am sure. However, some of the rest of us have been corrupted by a certain Web in-joke that means we will never, ever, be able to look at this sweater without laughing. (Hint: look at the detailing toward the bottom.)

If you don’t know the in-joke, don’t ask. Trust me, you don’t want to know.

This has not been altered in any way. Though I admit it would have been an easy creation in Photoshop. Nope, this is the way the sweater actually looks in the magazine.

  1. Ha! I had to look at the big version on Flickr before I figured it out, but you’re absolutely right. It really does look like that. It’s a weird detail even without the g***** connotations.

  2. Yes, it’s really odd. If I were to knit this I’d leave that detail out, and probably leave out the backbone-like bobbles up the back too. They are just weird-looking. With plain ribs, the sweater would like quite nice.

    I got the magazine a couple of months ago, and immediately saw the g***** — showed the pic to Jason and he immediately saw it too.
