Stranger Things fever has officially gripped us at Gang HQ. If you’re anything like us, you’ll have spent the past few years obsessively binging on Netflix’s Stranger Things, and as a DIY craft brand we’ve been paying close attention to the epic sweater vests and fair isle jumpers that have got our inner craft nerd seriously excited to recreate.
After the recent release of season 3, we couldn’t help but notice that Eleven wasn’t the only one serving serious looks. This inspired us to rewatch all the seasons and pick out the finest woolly moments from this 80’s-inspired TV show, just for your enjoyment.

Mrs. Wheeler, a.k.a Mike’s mum, who gave us serious swimsuit inspo in season 3, also rocked an impressive two tone sweater vest complete with chunky rib trim, best worn with Farah Fawcett esque curls.

In season 1 Barb (R.I.P Barb) went to reluctantly hang out with Nancy Wheeler and Steve Harrington and was never to be seen again. In her short time in Hawkins, she still managed to give great #styleinspo with this frilly 80’s sweater, anyone else want a tutorial on how to make that neck?

The school dance at the end of Season 2 was a major cuteness overload, made even cuter by the fact Mike wore a grey knitted sweater with his tie and blazer 🤗
