Interested in finding the 2014 Olympic Sweater, either to purchase or a knitting pattern for it! :)

It is available for purchase for 595$ According to what I saw on Google. The pattern is probably copyright of the designer.

You can even create your own by choosing your colors and having your name put on it.

I like the white ceremony sweaters with the red & blue Scandinavian type design, but when my husband and I saw the team cardigans, we agreed, future ugly sweater contest winners.

If it is the white sweaters you like, you can find many similar Scandinavian style patterns and then just add the flag to the front and the Olympic rings on the back, using and intarsia pattern. I wish they had better pictures of them on the website.

oops, it is the flag and rings on the back, the Polo brand on the front. You get the best view in the video of the male skater.

The only way I would wear that cardigan is with a ski mask cover my entire face so that no-one would recognize me

1st, let me apologize if my comments about the cardigan offended anyone. My aunt, whom is a wonderful person, would love this cardigan. She has closets full of these types of sweaters she orders from QVC.
2nd, I was wrong about the "many Scandinavian style patterns" geez, you'd think theses classic designs would be CURRENTLY in print or free online somewhere, but alas it seems they are all out of print :(

I actually happen to like the cardigan. So those who want to, may be able to invite me to their ugly sweater party. I just sent a note to Ralph Lauren to ask if the pattern would be made available since the sweaters were so expensive and are no longer available. If they respond, I'll post again.

Loved the Dale of Norway Olympic Sweaters. These, not so much, but then I am not a fan of Ralph Loren.

P.S. The video of from sheep to sweater is amazing. Really shows off the beauty of our Columbia Basin; "the other side of the mountains".
