Stretching the Knit the Look boundaries a little bit, I want to talk about this head shot of model Mariska van der Zee — or, more specifically, her sweater. Between the hair fiends, the fashion fiends and the knitting fiends, this photo was flying around Pinterest a few months ago, just about the time a big chunky sweater was beginning to be unthinkable. I don’t know who manufactured Mariska’s sweater, but the instant I saw it all I could think was how easy it would be to replicate. It’s Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Hurry-Up Last-Minute Sweater — a classic EZ recipe from her “Knitter’s Almanac” (what do you mean you don’t have it?!) — knitted in super bulky. It would be delicious in Purl Soho’s Super Soft Merino or Blue Sky Alpacas’ Bulky.

Oh, yes, I pinned that sweater. Love the wishbone neckline. Your formula for duplication is perfect.
it looks like the Six Point Tee by Cathy Carron !
Yes… totally gorgeous!!!!
But still unthinkable in this weather…
I like the look on that sweater.
love that look
Stop being so brilliant! My list of “to knit” is getting way too big because of you! ;)
I saw on Pinterest and loved too. The designer is Alexander Wang, love the chunky yarn.
I believe I pinned it too. I have a whole board called There Must Be a Pattern For This. One solved. Thanks!

If I can find the pattern I will be forever grateful
LOVE this! What size needles would I use with a super bulky yarn?
It depends entirely on the yarn and what density of fabric you’re going for. I’d swatch first on whatever needle size the ball band recommends and then go up or down from there if you want a looser or tighter knit.
How do you get your head through the neckline? It doesn’t look stretchy at all.
All depends on your bind-off.
Where do I get that pattern please?
It’s in the book Knitter’s Almanac.

Bonjour, auriez vous les explications de ce magnifique modèle, en français…. Merci 😊
Is it just st me, but I don’t understand EZ’s instructions?
Since it’s super bulky – any idea how many skeins it will take? EZ suggest 8 4 oz skeins of bulky….
You’d need to swatch and do some guesstimating.
Can I find this pattern in a sport weight
