Swing, Swagger, Drape
Knit the Colors of Australia

by Jane Slicer-Smith

This is much, much more than a collection of knitting patterns.  I have met Jane several times and she is just fantastic.  This is simply the best design to come out of Australia in decades.  Jane wants you to use her book as a jumping off point for your own ideas, and in this book she shows you how to do just that.
Take a closer look at the large photos from the book above.

Jane combines the three shapes, swing coats, swagger jackets, and draping wraps with all sorts of techniques and yarn options.  From choosing your palette through to the final blocking, there are clear instructions that highlight options in design, construction and color.

You'll spend the first few hours just looking at the great photography of Australia, before you even think about the knitting.  Photographer Alexis Xenakis transports you Down Under for a visit.  There is so much to this book that we cannot explain it all.

We are stocking Trendsetter Merino 6 and Merino 8 Superwash wools that are featured in this book.
