Le Tigre Hand-Knit Feminist Sweaters

I remember a while back, oh four years or so ago, I bought a magazine because Le Tigre was on the cover.  I want to say it was Venus magazine, but not too sure.  Anyway, I remember one of the pictures had the members wearing hand-knit sweaters, particular Kathleen Hanna wearing a sweater with the word “feminist” fair-isled on the entire body of the sweater.  Ever since I saw that sweater, I knew I wanted to replacate it.  However, I cannot find the photo.  I haven’t bothered looking for the magazine, which I should, but I have no clue if a) I still own it or b) where it would be.  If you find it, let me know.  I will love you forever 🙂

  1. I actually found your blog because I was wondering if anyone had replicated it. The picture was from a BUST magazine a few years ago, but I have since lost it 😦

    Please let me know if you end up knitting one up, I’ve been thinking about giving it a shot too.

    • I can’t find mine either. One of these days, I’ll get around to designing and knitting it 🙂

  2. go to http://www.lastfm.com …..on the le tigre radio station, whenever they play a le tigre song, the picture slideshow video flashes her feminist knit sweater over and over! If you are going to knit one… you should knit two! One for you and one for me! 😀

  3. cool! found it! here you go!

  4. Kerri, I love you forever!!!!

  6. I know that this is an old post, but did any of you end up making the feminist sweater? I’m interested in making one too, and any advice/pictures would very much be appreciated :]

    • I did!!! I will be posting it to the blog soon. I have camera technical difficulties ( I can’t find the usb cord to load pictures) so once I get a replacement, it’ll be up 🙂

  7. Hi misfityarns! Did you ever post the feminist sweater? do you have a pattern!?

  8. Hi! My friend is dying to make this sweater. If you post a pattern that would be AWESOME. thank so much!

    • I don’t have a pattern, but I do have a hand drawn chart if that helps. I kind of free handed it and used a “master pattern” from a book.

      • hey! i would really really love a copy of the pattern – any kind of pattern – that would amazing. PLEASE!!! thanks. also the sisterhood is powerful sweater. thanks a million!


      • Hi there, I just posted a follow up to the requests I’ve been getting. Please see the post Pattern Requests. I hope to digitize the charts soon.
