Found going through old knitting magazines, a version of the “splurge or steal?” fashion spread for knitters: “Which One Is the Calvin?” Text: If you love the high style of designer originals but hate the high costs, this is the sweater set for you! The crisp cable detailing that decorates the genuine Calvin Klein is faithfully re-created in our version. The delightful difference: You knit [Family Circle’s] twosome … for just $47, instead of spending $340 to buy the real set. So which one is the Calvin? You’ll have to look closely–only the price tags give them away. [The person who saved these didn’t save the left side of the image, but the magazine goes on to say that the one below is the Family Circle version.]

The kicker: Calvin Klein also authorized knitting patterns. Does that matter?
