This is the official pattern for the sweater Lane Kim wears in the Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. We're thrilled to make this design available to knitters everywhere!
The designer allows us to offer hard copies of her patterns with the caveat that we not provide electronic/pdf copies. As of the time of this writing, an electronic version of the pattern is not available.
If you would like us to downgrade shipping to a lower cost option, please note this prior to check out. The standard flat rate for your location is automatically applied to all orders, but we can provide an estimate for alternate shipping method(s) and will refund any overage.
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 (click here for our recommended yarn and colors). 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.
