Anyone else remember knitwear like this? - Image I had lots, all knitted by my Nana and they weren't considered 'designer' and didn't cost £195

I had a lovely jumper along the lines of this design and would love another - but not at that price!

I think these are back in fashion tumblespots. I saw a yellow one in a magazine last week which was reasonably priced. It caught my eye as I used to have one like it.

gerrykelly25 tumblespots That's what caught my eye, funny how things come back. When I had them they were 'just jumpers'. Mine used to get 'extensions' on the arms and body length because I was growing so fast, Nana used to unpick and put an extra fair isle bit in then knit cuffs back.

lilyflower that was a clever trick! I have never mastered the art of knitting. Being left handed, it was difficult to learn.

You should buy yourself one in memory of your Nana ❤️

gerrykelly25 Nana had many talents, she could knit, sew, bake and passed all these skills on. Her mum was a seamstress and Nana worked in a sweet factory. I think it must be in the genes as I bake and my son's a chef, but my sister sews.

I usually buy my winter jumpers from primark. They always keep me warm. I like the Christmas jumper range they have there

I quite like that jumper. Not for £195 tho. Theres alot of Fairisle style jumpers on the high street at the mo for considerably less money.

My granny used to knit all my cardigans when I was younger. My son has lots of knitted cardigans and jumpers from his great Granny and his great auntie. I really like that jumper but I wouldn't pay that for it!

A lot of my Scandinavian friends wear knitwear like this, mainly as knitwear never goes out if fashion, and a lot of it are hand-me-downs
