Friday Fun: Knitted shark cardigan from Topshop


Remember those sweaters your grandmother/maiden aunt/other female relative used to knit you for Christmas? The ones with the random animal on the front, that you'd have to drag out every year and wear for a day, so as not to cause offence? And they'd always be weirdly itchy?

Well, we don't know about "itchy", but we think Topshop have done a pretty good job of recreating that special sweater. If it made you squee rather than squeal, it's £50, and you can buy it here.

Topshop Shark Sweater, £50

    This makes me lol and go awww, but it’s still not something I’d want to wear (except when shuffling round the house with a hangover, or trying to keep warm in the dead of winter), let alone pay £50 for. As you said, if I wanted one that bad I’d ask my grandma to knit one for me 😛

    I’d never wear it, but it’s kind of cute. I see it with skinny chocolate cords and several delicate gold chains.

    That’s one hell of a fattening shark.

    One of the @ASOS girls I follow on Twitter bought this last week. And she seems to love it too.
    I’m not sold personally, and it’s not very flattering either.
