It is time to rethink the ugly Christmas sweater! I found several simple, subtle holiday-ish sweaters that give a nod and wink to the season. They are made in the Intarsia knitting technique that means several colors of yarn are used to create a pattern, but the colors are knitted separately from each other so that they stand alone and do not blend together, almost as if the motif is dropped into the solid background. I cannot decide but, if I had to choose, I think my first choice is the polar bear sweater from Talbots and second place is the Factory J. Crew bow sweater. What is your favorite?
