Keeping Habs Fans Warm

Some people are knitters. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’m not, but I used to hold the wool for my mother.

If you need a new Habs sweater but are boycotting NHL products to show your displeasure with the lockout, then this is for you. Don’t fork out the two-hundred bucks, make one yourself. But you have to know how to knit, like Jacques Plante did. Or you could get your mother do make it, which is what I would do if she was still around.

And never mind the “what the hell is this knitting shit on a Habs blog?” I just want you to be warm, that’s all. Cause that’s the kind of guy I am.

  1. Wow that is a really nice sweater Robert! I think I will have to join the knitting club and make one some day.

  2. Just saw your post on “Zite” …I have been looking for this pattern book forever ! I have three people whom I’ve wanted to knit hockey sweaters for and they’re canadian ,leafs and islanders fans there a chance you could send me those patterns ( just like you’ve posted them in this blog would be great ) from the book ? I’ll appreciate it so much if possible ..thanks ! stacey

  3. Stacey, I can understand you wanting to please your les Canadiens fan but the Laffs & Bytowners just give them pictures of what they could have received! There’s only one team worthy of all that effort & it has a big CH on it. By the way welcome aboard, I’ve not seen your name posted before today!!

  4. Excellent! This could be the start of the Dennis Kane Knitting Club.

    PS – Don’t you think the Canucks kid in the middle looks like a little Steve Stamkos?

  5. Haha thanks .. I only saw the post coz its a on a knitting blog that I’m on .. I think once upon atime I followed hockey when growing up in Montreal . These days the closest I’ve come to following hockey is Stompin Tom Connors ! My boyfriends 5 year grandson is the leafs fan and niece is the cnds fan .. They’re going to be soo happy ! Have a great day !

  6. Wow love the habs sweater. My son, just tonight, asked me for one for Christmas, and I found this blog, unfortunately, when I emailed Dennis it came back. Does anyone have this pattern to share with me please? Thank you so much


  7. Francine, I’m confused. The pattern is in the story so why would you want to know if anyone has it? And if your email came back, it must have been the wrong address. No? Please let me know cause I want to help.

  8. Hi Dennis
    First of all, I do thank you for this pattern. What I meant was the pattern Bryan’s mom made, as per link in post above. I’m looking for an integrated Logo. I need full instructions as I can’t make up patterns.
    As for emailing you, I pressed on your email above and it came back as undeliverable.

    Today I sent you 2 emails. The 2nd one wouldn’t go, so I resent it. I’m hoping you got it. It’s more or less saying what I wrote here.

    Thank you

  9. I’m glad I stumbled upon this blog post–I’ve been commissioned to knit a baby-sized Habs jersey to serve as a birth announcement (ie: with the person’s last name and a big number 1 on the back!).

    To Francine and any other commenters who wished to have a hockey sweater with the logo as part of the knitted garment, I found a free Fair-Isle Habs logo here.

  10. I cannot wait to make for the kids however
    can you please send the sizes from Page 5 as well as the weight of the wool if they have it.


  11. Hi Dennis
    Could you please send me the instructions for the hockey sweaters above. I have been looking all over for them. I thank you so much!

  12. Tonya, I’ll need to dig the book out and do it for you. Not sure when, but hopefully soon.
