"Archive Knit" : this sweater has been designed using our knitting family archives from the 30s to the 90s.
The story behind this pattern is quite original, as it is often the case with Le Mont St Michel. It was designed by Alexandre's mother, and one of the first to be made on Singer PAP circular jacquard knitting machines which were bought from the US in the early 60s. The graphic pixel style is not a choice, it was a technical constraint from these machines at the time. It was nonetheless very impressive back then! Originally knitted from Shetland wool, Alexandre and his brothers were used to wearing this family sweater for year.
