From Vogue Knitting, Fall/Winter 1987:
“Adrienne Vittadini takes her inspiration this season from traditional needlework designs. A classic Vittadini crewneck pull is the backdrop for her colorwork pattern of stylized flowers and embroidered French knots. She’s borrowed this from a Hungarian country print.”
