Remembering Mr. Rogers

Fred Rogers was the host of the popular long-running public television children’s show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Rogers’ mild manner, cardigan sweaters and soft speaking voice made him widely beloved.  Each episode began the same way: Mister Rogers is seen coming home, singing his theme song “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”, and changing into sneakers and a zippered cardigan sweater – most of which were knit by his mother.

 

This year and next, 2 movies about Fred Rogers are coming to the big screen.  The first of which has already become the #1 Bioptic of all time.  But will it be bested by next year’s film starring Tom Hanks in the lead role?
I’ll bet the answer is yes.
We would like to honor this remarkable man with a special hand knit sweater- one you knit up as well!  
Get the pattern: “The Neighborly Cardigan” FREE.  
Our version shown here is knit in Encore Tweed.
