Doris Day’s Jumper for you to knit! c. 1950s

Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff  (Doris Day) is one my favourite actors, inspiring my cat’s name – Calamity Jane. Besides being an amazing singer, animal right’s campaigner and appearing in 39 films, she’s also a gay icon beloved by many (including me).

And now, you can knit her jumper!

It’s a bit racey, with a plunging neckline accentuated with silver beads. To fit a 34-inch bust, its knit using a fingering weight crepe yarn on 2.75mm and 3mm needles.

I hope you enjoy it!

    I will probably never knit this but thank-you for sharing! Doris is one of my favourite actresses, too. 😀 I'm working on a top 5 movie list in honour of her birthday at my movie blog, actually!
