Poirot for Knitters

My lovely older sister Bronwyn very generously lent me her collection of Hercule Poirot series dvds last week, and already the first disc has thrown up an embarrassment of riches in Art Deco knitwear.

















I thought the fair isle vest worn by Hastings in the first episode was eminently copyable for either myself or Marcus. I seriously doubt Felix would wear a fair isle vest - boo!
















Then up popped two little boys in vests, so out came the camera and magnifying glass again.

Finally, the golf scenes.














First off, the disgruntled old codgers waiting on Poirot. Fair isle vests and argyle socks are go!














I think I'm in love with this jumper worn by Hastings - moss stitch with button down pockets? Too yummy.














Last up , what every female golfer needs: a cable vest with side buttons, matching fair isle jumper tied round the neck and a very fetching beret. Just spiffing, I say!
