From the scarf knitted by your grandmother or aunt, Audrey Hepburn in a black woolen dress, the epitome of stylish chic, to the mass-produced designer label sweaters we all have a favorite piece of knitted attire, and this title covers them all, looking at the very best - and sometimes the worst! - in knitted fashion.
