The Edge of Love

In The Edge of Love, a movie starring Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller that takes place during World War II, the costume design is absolutely phenomenal.
There are so many gorgeous knits throughout the film, but one in particular stands out:

This mustard-colored leaf cardigan is very unique-looking, and it seems that a lot of knitters noticed it and are wondering where to find a pattern for it. I did find an etsy shop that sells a very similar-looking vintage pattern:

The shop is babydee, and here is the link to purchase a copy of this pattern:

Oh, and it's not quite as obviously gorgeous, but this little tea cozy caught my eye too:

Isn't it adorable? It could be straight out of Anthropologie ;)

There are many tea cozy patterns on Ravelry that are just so sweet. This one in particular is cute. And I love this one too.

And if you're really into tea cozies, you could just buy this book! (click here for the Amazon listing)


  1. WOW. I have not seen that movie, but the sweater is incredible!

  2. You've been awarded a blog award!


  3. that tea cozy is adorbs! i want one...and i don't even drink tea!

  4. My knitting friend and I have been obsessing about finding out the pattern for this sweater for months. I briefly gave up on it but have reccently been looking again. That Etsy pattern is cute but it really isn't the same sweater. If you are looking for something closer, I found a pattern here that looks closer:

    The leaves appear to be the same only a little bigger. I'm going to get my hands on that pattern and begin expirimenting! I'll probably write about it in my blog if anyone is interested. You can click on my name to see. Good luck!
