This just may be the ugliest of the famous sweaters series.
The story about the sweater has floated around the Internet for years.
The original posting says:
"I found this sweater at the Salvation Army thrift store on Valencia Street in San Francisco a few years ago. It cost me $3.75. It has proved to be a good investment.
The tags sewn to the inside of the sweater read as follows:
1) "M" a relative size, this sweater stretches a lot as can be witnessed below.
2) "Handmade by l'americaine" (!)
3) "100% ACRYLIC, hand wash cold, do not twist or wring. reshape. dry flat touch up with warm iron on reverse side as necessary. do not dry clean. rn 50148. made in Korea."
