Faux-Knit National / Olympic Hockey Sweaters...Want one? (also, new template)

Recommended Posts

There's been a few teams using faux-knit Christmas sweaters this year.

They're kinda fun, so I thought I'd try a few.

I used my wife's chunky-knit sweater as a template.(she's not chunky...the sweater is :grin: )

The large knit made detail almost impossible, but that factor added to the look, I think.

These are vector designs, so I think these could be sublimated, with sewn-on numbers and names.

Sweden

Those are Viking ships on the sleeves :P ...

Finland

That Coat of Arms was a tough one to pull off.

I put some reindeer (a popular knit sweater icon) on the sleeves.

It is fun, #1.

Once the template's made, it's just like "paint-by-numbers".

Thanks for the response guys.

Russia

This is just a short series, so Russia is the final one.

I've been a little critical of the Nike Sochi Hockey effort,

but I gotta say that their Russian design makes a real nice knit pattern for a winter sweater. <_<...Great.

These far outclass the real sweaters.

I hate you Sparky. This stuff is brilliant.

I'd be happier if these were being worn over the current Nike disaster.

Too bad you dont do Norway and switzerland

Thanks for the input guys.

Sadly, I won't have the time gesier.

However, It looks like my 'chunky-knit sweater' concepts were on the money...

Hi guys...here's a template that might work a little better for ya...

Just fill in the white stitches. It's like doing 8-bit art!

Also...the good folks over at Geeky Jerseys might make these (or some of these) up, if there was enough interest...

So, if you think that you'd like one of these sweaters (and Geeky Jerseys makes a real nice product) go to their Facebook page and "like" this photo...
