Celebrities and knitting – early careers

The other day we stumbled across some amazing photos of none other than James Bond himself modelling knitwear! That is, one of the Bond’s at least; Roger Moore!

Doesn’t he just look so handsome?


The stunning garment in the picture appears to be a vintage Sirdar pattern and the colour is just perfect for Easter!

There are a few other celebrities that started their careers as knitwear models too, such as Kate Moss and Eddie Redmayne for Rowan.


Here she is, the famous Kate, wearing fabulous knitwear in Rowan Magazine. Then there is Eddie. A young and fresh faced mr Redmayne modelling fab jumpers in yet another issue of Rowan magazine. They might just have a knack for spotting the talent early?


But – hands down our favourite find whilst searching the internet for celebs in knitwear has got to be this post from Messy Nessy with images from a book featuring British actors modelling knitwear. This is something rather spectacular folks! You can thank us for the laughs later….
