Meet Amimono Horinouchi … He’s Knitting His Way Through the Rock ‘n’ Hall of Fame One Sweater at a Time

If Amimono Horinouchi (visit him on Etsy too) is not on your radar, please allow me to correct that. It won’t hurt a bit and I think you’ll be forever grateful … and he doesn’t just knit sweaters featuring rock icons, he also knits bags, and he often features indie film cult faves like John Waters and Divine. Enjoy!

He has a small selection available for sale on Etsy, including the purple Amy Winehouse piece you see above!

Visit his web site here to learn more about him and follow his work on Etsy (yes, he has some of his knitwear for sale), Instagram and Twitter. Want to learn more? Read this piece from Vice.
