I’ve been churning through several feet of stockinette over the last couple weeks, and you know what that means: binge-watching Netflix.
I had finished most of the shows I had been working on, so I had to find a new show to watch. Preferably one with sweaters. Lots of sweaters.
Enter: Bates Motel. A show from A&E, it’s a sort-of prequel/reboot/bizarro version of Psycho (the Hitchcock movie). It’s actually really good, or at least I enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns and intrigue (and murder… and drugs… and taxidermy).
It’s based in modern-day, but the costumes have a very fifties-feel. Which, for Norman Bates, means sweaters.
Want to make yourself a Norman Bates sweater, too? Try one of these vintage-y Fair Isle creations:
