Vintage Inspired Baseball Knits: It’s hard to imagine your favorite baseball players today sporting hand knit sweaters while sitting in the dugout, but when baseball first started sweaters were part of the uniform. These team sweaters are a casualty in a world of sweat wicking technology, but now you can relive the baseball sweater glory days with Vintage Inspired Baseball Knits.  Designer Allyson Dykhuizen unites her love of baseball and knitting in this six pattern tribute to the baseball days of old. Whether your favorite team is the St Louis Browns or the Baltimore Orioles, sweaters like Trolley Dodger, The Georgia Peach, Harnett Tank, and Knickerbocker Tee will have you ready for first pitch in old school style. Dress your favorite baby in pinstripes with Baby Babe Ruth and keep yourself warm in your team’s colors with Stadium Blanket.
