The Bachelorette: Bryce’s Sweater (Rachel is the Best!)

As you know, I love The Bachelor franchise. Rachel is the dream lead I’ve always wanted for The Bachelorette. She is a wonderful, smart, ridiculously well-spoken woman who deserves so much more than this stupid show that I love. Admittedly, she’s a lawyer, so of course she’s great at articulating with quick wit and incredible comebacks. She drops more F bombs than I could ever dream of for this show.

I feel a bit bad that I’m making such a big deal about a woman of color being “articulate,” but smart people of all types have been crushed by this show. She is unbelievably amazing under the extraordinary pressure that is being on this ridiculous TV show. Most people, regardless of race are reduced to blubbering, crying, confused messes, and I don’t blame them. Ultimately, this post is about Bryce’s sweater but first let’s enjoy Rachel dropping an F bomb:

She has a dog! She has a stunning sense of style! She has to live up to the completely unfair standard of being the first woman of color being a lead on this television show! She is a goddess and a dream, and I’ve never been so happy to watch The Bachelorette. I’ve noticed in the previews there’s a killer sweater that she wears that I’m dying to feature on the blog once I get a better look at it.

In the meantime, also there are some guys on the show that she’s dating. One specifically, Bryce, is completely forgettable and totally not going to “win” but he is wearing a killer sweater. I am, admittedly, not a Bryce fan. He made a trans-phobic comment in his bio, and he beat Kenny at mud wrestling. But Bryce’s sweater is super sexy on him.

Who knows, maybe I’m wrong and he’s totally Rachel’s favorite. I don’t know, I like living a spoiler free existence!

Knitting Ideas:

For a similar chevron pattern check out the always amazing Ann Budd’s “Goat Herder Pullover” design:

And for another similar sweater with the same collar and color, check out Bristol Ivy’s “Griffin Sweater Design.

I hope some of the awesome men of color this season bring their knitwear game and I can feature them on the blog soon!
