Before the wonders of Lycra and fleece, there were wool cycling sweaters, perhaps best known for being worn in the early 1900s during the first Tours de France. Despite their charms (wool is flexible and stays warm when wet), today wool cycling jerseys are less common (perhaps making a comeback?) Here Adrian Bizilia offers a pattern for one that can be personalized to create a one-of-a-kind treat.

“Dur à Cuire” is French slang for “tough guy”.
