But there are a few sweaters that are missing from this Knitwear Hall of Fame. For example, this painting of the Prince of Wales sporting his beautiful fair isle jumper launched a craze that continues to this day.
Speaking of royalty, you know how much I love the angora bolero Kate Middleton wore to her wedding reception.
For another beauty donning a sweater, how about Marilyn Monroe in the cowichan cardigan?
Or the original sweater girl herself, Lana Turner?
One of my favorites is Coraline and her star sweater which was handknitted by Althea Crome (watch her knitting in action).
One of the most famous sweaters ever: the Harry Potter Weasley jumper (this entry is dedicated to Katie Kearney).
Now for some TV star sweaters. I've blogged previously about The Killing and it's most famous Faroe pullover.
Laverne's monogrammed L takes me back to the 70s... how about you?
And while we're back in the day, don't forget Richie Cunningham's letter sweater from Happy Days.
