KATM + PR: Love and Other Drugs

Anne Hathaway + Jake Gyllenhaal + Viagra + Parkinson's + comfy sweaters = Love and Other Drugs.  Let's begin, shall we?

Maggie's Black and White Toque
Full disclosure: chicken before the egg.  I found the pattern for this hat serendipitously, which prompted me to add LAOD to the KATM queue ASAP.  Me FTW?
Sometimes a picture of a hat is enough to change the course of your afternoon, what can I say.  Also: I want this hair on my head now.

Maggie's Black and White Cardi
Where is this movie set?  Pittsburgh.  And Maggie is an artsy photog type.  That combo assures sweaters and I wasn't disappointed.
If you must wear overalls (and I'm definitely not saying you must), it helps to pair them with a sweet cardigan and mussed ringlets.

Maggie's Aran Turtleneck
I mean, look at this gorgeous thing!  I'm talking about the sweater, not the hairstyle.  Have I mentioned that I covet the hair?
Wee pocket flaps!  The cables look squishy and warm -- there's more than enough time to complete this pullover before next winter.

Maggie's Oatmeal Cardigan
Usually when I refer to an "oatmeal" cardigan, I mean the color alone, but this time the texture is along for the ride.

It looks comfy, but boring...  the cables on the pockets save me from falling asleep in a pile of porridge.
Oh yeah, and both of these kinda remindy pattern are free!

Rando Senior's Bus Hat
Joke for you: how is this pom pom stocking cap like a newspaper?
Ready to laugh?  It's black and white and red all over!!  GET IT?  Whatevs.  I'm a librarian, not a comedienne.  You're welcome.
This motif would be simple enough to replicate, so here's a kinda remindy free! pattern to start you off.

BONUS PATTERNS: Annie's Boobs (not the monkey)
In honor of the realistic shocking nudity in this film (sorry, forgot I was American for a second; movie sex is so much worse than movie violence, amirite? /sarcasm), here are some free! chesticle patterns.
