I’ve been giving very careful thought to my next projects. Inspired by Stephen West, and my recent fun at Stitches with him, I decided to try my hand at swants. Harem-style pants are really fashionable right now, and I realized out of all the garments I’ve made, I’ve never knit any bottoms.
If you are interested in making your own, Stephen gave an excellent tutorial on his blog.
He also, just for fun, did a Youtube video of dancing in them.
There are many reasons to make swants, but the best one I can think of is putting a sweater you’re sick of to different use. There are lots of tutorials for doing it, and I would suggest doing a quick search on Youtube to watch a video if you have a hard time following the blog tutorials.
So….you all don’t really believe me, do you??? April Fool’s! 🙂
