Years ago I accepted a dare to create a knitting pattern of the Dude’s sweater in the movie, The Big Lebowski. The Dude has been one of my most popular patterns, and I’ve designed a lot of things since then, but I’ve always wanted to revisit that concept. I’ve been plotting a Dude-inspired sweater that could fit anyone and would be a joy to knit, and I’ve finally accomplished my goal with The Royal We: Dude Patterns for Everyone.
These sweaters are thoughtfully designed with great details like tubular edgings, a generous short-row shaped collar, and compound raglan yoke shaping for a great fit. And they’re worked entirely in the round so you never have to purl your color work.
Knit it for you, your partner, and your Little Lebowski Urban Achiever. This sweater will really tie the room together.
