Putting the 'Sweat' in 'Sweater' (and several other places)

Sweet Jeezus.

Where do you even start with this?

1965, I'd guess. The year smack infiltrated the Detroit Butterick Patterns factory:

"You know what would be really fresh and new? A skin-tight body-tube made with heavy wool!"

It's vintage, so I'm covering it here. But don't get any ideas, people. I swear to God, if I see a single woolitard...

Sigh. ...The worst part is, I bet I know what Paris Hilton will be wearing in Aspen this year.

See more scary vintage knit patterns with accompanying witty commentary at Stitchy McYarnpants.

I have a knitting sister-in-law who's gonna love this (if we could only convince her to use the Internet...those crazy knitters and their low-tech ways).

That? Is beyond scary. And I somehow have no doubt that Paris or Mischa will be sporting this come winter.

Also? There are a frightening amount of knitters online. Tempt your sister-in-law with all the cute free patterns & I'm sure she'll jump on board.

p.s. Here's what I wonder: how do you get a knit body-tube ON? Think about it...

...Maybe they just knit it directly onto your body...
