Eddie Redmayne: actor, Oscar nominee – and Rowan knitwear model!
Recognise this chap? He might be a household name at the Oscars now, but back in the early days, Eddie Redmayne modelled for one of Britain’s biggest handknit companies, the fabulous Rowan!
Wearing some of their more distinctive designs, including Saucer and Brooklyn, the photos were published in Rowan’s Denim People collection, which features patterns by top designers such as Martin Storey, Kim Hargreaves, Erika Knight and Louisa Harding.
Shot back in 2004 when Eddie was a wee 22-year-old budding star, you can buy the pattern for Combat (above) right here on the Rowan website - and you can download the pattern for Brooklyn for free while you’re there, too!
Who wouldn’t want to look like an Oscar winner?
