Aw, look at Eddie Redmayne's adorable baby face!

Before the sexy Les Mis star graced the silver screen, the handsome actor was a sweater model (no, really) for the knitting how-to handbook Denim People

Too cute! The Rowan Yarns knitwear company posted the photo from 2004 on Facebook with the caption, "Hollywood A-lister found in the Rowan archive!"

The good-looking star models the "Saucer" pattern in the flashback photo, flaunting his red hair and freckles at the young age of 22.

We think Eddie looks adorable in the old-school pic, but we're happy to see the now 31-year-old hunk has ditched his shaggy ‘do.

Still, we can't get enough of those fabulous freckles, and we must admit—knitting's never looked so sweet!
