Some things about the 80s were cool. Super Mario Brothers. Pac Man. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But let's face it, many things about the 80s sucked, and nothing sucked more than the sweaters. Anybody who lived through that particular decade will know what we're talking about, but for those of you who missed it, check out these sweaters to see how lucky you are. They come from Wit Knits, a funny Tumblr that posts pictures of sweaters taken from a real knitting pattern book from 1986. The author describes the patterns as "lively and original" - how would YOU describe them? Let us know in the comments!
