Thank god it’s not dark green, and 60cm.
Some of the vintage knitting books that have been reprinted in the past few years date to the bicycling boom of the early 20th century and have patterns for cycling sweaters (for both ladies and gentlemen) and caps, so if you’re a cyclist who knits, you’ve got it made; the rest of you will need to make friends with knitters, many of whom will be intrigued by the challenge.
Great pics! I have a piece tracing the history of bicycle fashion that dovetails with this post!
