March 20 is the birthday of the late, great, Fred Rogers, best known for hosting the children’s television show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, in which he changed into a zippered cardigan (all of which were handknit by his mother!) at the beginning of every episode. I hope that both he and his mom would appreciate this selection of zippered cardigans that Ravelers have finished this year!

“The thing I remember best about successful people I’ve met all through the years is their obvious delight in what they’re doing and it seems to have very little to do with worldly success. They just love what they’re doing, and they love it in front of others.”
