Beloved children’s TV icon Mr. Rogers has never been far from our hearts, and now there’s a Lion Brand pattern to prove it! In addition to continuing to captivate young audiences for decades, there will be a new documentary about his life & work this summer, and Tom Hanks will play him in a biopic this fall. In case you didn’t know, Mr. Rogers’ mom knit all his sweaters for him. And one of his favorites was even donated to the Smithsonian! If you’re a long-time Mr. Rogers fan, check out our new pattern below, and knit your own friendly neighborhood sweater.
