There are many reasons to watch Pedro Almodovar's Volver. But beyond Penelope Cruz's acting chops, you will no doubt notice the gorgeous cardigans she wears throughout the film.
If you like this look, check out the pattern options I selected for you:

The Holiday

Oh dear, has it really been this long?? A thousand apologies and many thanks for your comments and for the Blog Award, Honore! (I feel completely undeserving after having deserted this blog for so long!!!)

I will kick things off with one of the most gorgeous movie knits ever: the cabled cardigan (or is it a sweater?) that Cameron Diaz wears in The Holiday (a thoroughly enjoyable "chick flick" by the way):

FYI, this sweater retails for close to $1000! I kid you not. Ok, it's cashmere but still!

But thanks to the magic that is Ravelry, I present to you the Fireside Sweater by Amber Allison (pattern available for purchase on Ravelry here):

Check out PoshKnit's version here. And YarnIt's version here. And KissMyFrog's version here... Beautiful.
