Jumbo Coffee Sweater pattern



This is the official pattern for the sweater Lane Kim wears in the Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the LifeWe're thrilled to make this design available to knitters everywhere!

It’s a jumbo coffee morning — or rather, sweater! This piece emerged in the immediate aftermath of the joyous excitement knitwear designers Lisa & Lucia felt when Gilmore Girls costume designer Brenda Mabon first asked them to contribute some signature knits for the Netflix revival of the show. The color scheme is based on the interior set of Luke’s Diner and the Intarsia raglan is a nod to Lorelai’s fondness for baseball tees. Hopefully, you’ll have almost as much fun with this pattern as Lisa Lucia did seeing it worn by Lane Kim on the small screen.
