sweaters: Sweater curse From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The "sweater curse" or "curse of the love sweater" is a term used by knitters to describe the belief that if a knitter gives a hand-knit sweater to a significant other, it will lead to the recipient breaking up with the knitter [11 In an alternative formulation, the relationship will end before the sweater is even completed.2 The belief is widely discussed in knitting publications, and some knitters claim to have experienced it.[31415] In a 2005 poll, 15% of active knitters said that they had experienced the sweater curse firsthand, and 41% considered it a possibility that should be taken seriously I6 Despite its name, the "sweater curse" is treated in knitting literature not as a superstition governed by paranormal forces, but rather as a real- world pitfall of knitting that has rational explanations. 3I7 Several plausible mechanisms for the sweater curse have been proposed, but it has not been studied systematically. 5 eartheld: elodieunderglass: alittlemothboy: that is some next level knot magic.  it isn’t though!!! it’s because most relationships aren’t worth the effort.

sweaters: Sweater curse
 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 The "sweater curse" or "curse of the love
 sweater" is a term used by knitters to
 describe the belief that if a knitter gives a
 hand-knit sweater to a significant other, it
 will lead to the recipient breaking up with
 the knitter [11 In an alternative formulation,
 the relationship will end before the sweater
 is even completed.2 The belief is widely
 discussed in knitting publications, and
 some knitters claim to have experienced
 it.[31415] In a 2005 poll, 15% of active
 knitters said that they had experienced the
 sweater curse firsthand, and 41%
 considered it a possibility that should be
 taken seriously I6
 Despite its name, the "sweater curse" is treated in knitting literature not
 as a superstition governed by paranormal forces, but rather as a real-
 world pitfall of knitting that has rational explanations. 3I7 Several
 plausible mechanisms for the sweater curse have been proposed, but it
 has not been studied systematically.
