The Real Starsky Sweater Knit Pattern
The Controversial Starsky Sweater
Both Ben Stiller and Paul Michael Glaser played the role of 'Starsky' in the series and movie 'Starsky and Hutch'. It was a 70's (80's???) series that is generally about a buddy relationship between two undercover cops who rode a stunning striped red Torino. Starsky also has the most famous sweater in the planet -- in fact it still is the most famous (and controversial) sweater in the planet despite the fact that this series was a HIT 30 years ago.
Some of my friends have offered me their 'version' closest to the Starsky Sweater. In fact, I didn't think so unless I got a lot of responses to my first knit article which frankly, surprised me. It was this curiosity that made me REALLY try to find the knitting pattern of the real Starsky Sweater... and I did. Of course, I expect someone to say something like 'no, it lacks one stripe or Ben Stiller's sweater is not like Paul Michael Glaser's sweater!'. There will always be fruitcakes and they amuse me.
So I found this magazine at one of the most popular sites. The person selling the pattern is from the UK and I decided to BUY the pattern even if it was something like 10 bucks. Well, it is REALLY worth it considering that I am having it knitted now and also because I want to have ONE for myself without having to buy it.
Please see my other hubpages. There are variants to this one, but this is the REAL pattern, the rest were 'close' but NOTHING like this.. now let me share this with those who have asked (dared?) me to find the REAL thing!
