There are many thousands of brilliant knitting patterns out there that people have designed and we love them for that. But bear in mind that, within living memory, someone also designed this:

(Grateful thanks to Golden Hands circa 1976-77 for these very special garments.)
(* If you do want to knit either of these monstrosities, let me know and I will arrange an intervention.)
