My teenage grandson just requested a "Cosby" sweater -- I've had quite a time figuring something out that isn't too complex.

Always loved the Cosby sweaters; I think they're stylin'! My dad has some similar to them.

I once, back then, proposed to my older son Douglas, that I knit him a sweater like one of Cosby's.

I had really misread his taste, and he came back at me with his dry humor: "Will it come with lights on it?"

So much for colorul sweaters for Doug!

Solid navy blue was the color of choice!

Me too. Great article. I never watched that show and didn't know about his legacy of sweaters. Very cool that so many of them were custom knit for him.
