In mid-December, Instagram is flooded with photos of people wearing an apparently woolen sweater, in shades of red, white and green with some holiday print – snowman, Santa Claus or a reindeer.
The look seems to have already become an essential part of the holiday season in the Northern Hemisphere. Is it flashy? Yup. A little corny? Also. But a lot of fun.
Christmas-themed pullovers began to appear in the 1950s in the UK and US. Initially they were called “Jingle Bell Sweaters” and weren’t as flashy as today’s versions. At first, they were not so successful. It was only during the 1980s that it gained popularity. The shift came thanks to pop culture, with characters like Clark Griswold from Chevy Chase in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” turning the Christmas sweater into an expression of joy and heavily used at office parties and on Christmas Day.
This cute sweater is made with four granny squares at the front and four at the back. Then shaping and adding sleeves.
