This post is obviously a little outside the usual content posted on this site, but I thought I would share this project with those of you who have an inner craft nerd just dying to get out.
I am a bit of an avid crafter and felt compelled to express my love for the club the only way I knew how: I knit an LFC-themed sweater. As you do. I took an existing pattern and altered all the motifs to reflect many of the common references to the club's history and identity.
All of the grey/white motifs are based on Turkish knitting patterns because of the Miracle of Istanbul.
If you're not yet aware, we won it five times. L4 is Anfield's postal code.
"Poor Scouser Tommy" is my absolute favourite Kop song, so it was a given that I'd have to find a way to integrate it somewhere into the design.
Because YNWA had to be included somewhere.
Besides the fact that it's super warm and extra cozy, I had a lot of fun making this. If anyone else likes to knit and/or has a very generous grandmother, you can find the Liver bird chart here. Thanks for looking!
