The trend is emerging to put the cat jumper on other characters as well, for no reason.

Reapersun’s interpretation of John’s donning of the crazy kitty jumper.
The Crazy Kitty Jumper
Though the fandom has never hesitated to imagine John Watson in tacky jumpers, nothing has quite topped Pretty Snake’s crazy kitty jumper:
Though not actually specifically related to the series in any way, the sheer cracky absurdity of it has captured the imaginations of rabid fans everywhere, and ever since about mid-September fanart of John in the kitty jumper - and endless variations thereof - have plagued Tumblr. Though Pretty Snake had been listing similar sweaters on Etsy for more than a year before the fandom got hold of this one, the artist has since realized the sudden popularity of the item and has begun listing a similar one as “The Official Sherlock and Watson Crazy Cat Jumper.” As the artist uses found sweaters, the new ones are not identical to the original, but the trifling discrepancies seem to make little difference to the fans, as Pretty Snake has already sold several of them.
The cat faces are screen printed onto the sweater, and the three-dimensional glass eyes are subsequently attached.
