Knitting a striped sweater inspired by Audrey Hepburn

I’ve been taking inspiration from the past since… I can remember. And the more I learn to sew and knit my own clothes the more I lean into the possibility of crating a vintage inspired wardrobe for myself.

I recently found these beautiful pictures of Audrey Hepburn hanging out casually with a striped sweater. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, maybe people wouldn’t even identify it as vintage, but the truth is that since the 50s and 60s, Audrey has been an irrefutable fashion icon, with a classy and timeless style.

Audrey being casual and cool

What I liked the most about this look in particular was how casual and comfortable she looks. I thought it would be a fun outfit to reproduce by knitting a sweater inspired by this striped classic. To make things easier, I decided to use Bellish once more

Bellish is a knitting pattern generator. It’s free on iOS and I had used it in the past to make a pair of socks. This felt like the real test at using it to make a garment.

To find out how this adventure went, check out my video below.

If you would like to make this sweater or give it your own spin, check out the Bellish app.

You can choose from a variety of garments, sizes and styles in a very easy to follow process to generate your own pattern.

I live in a big messy city and making things has become a passion that brings me to explore it more, meet people who enjoy it too, and have something fun to do while I commute too! I love to share my designs and tutorials to make it easy for more people to join the craft(s).
