St. Patricks Day!

Shamrocks and green ribbons were worn as early as the 17th century to symbolize St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and a religious feast day. Today it is a secular holiday and the most recognized saint's day in the world.

This beautiful floral jacquard, reminiscent of shamrocks, was produced in 1961. It is a bi-color knit called "Flower Song". The matching cardigan was meant for "after dive" activities, an innovative concept of a new ad campaign.

"Just Wear a Smile and a Jantzen" and "Top O' the Morning" to you. Let's celebrate!
