Swants Tutorial….Yes please and thanks

In knitting, sewing on November 14, 2013 at 10:30 pm

So I’ve been following West Knits on Instagram and he has been posting these swants that are truly amazing! “What the heck are swants?” you ask. Well, they’re sweaters upcycled, repurposed and reinvented into sweater pants. The best thing is that you don’t have to knit the sweater and then destroy it!The best bet is Goodwill or other thrift shops in your area. Wool or other natural fibers are best for the job.

How amazing would it be to have a sweater warming up your tush?! I need to make a pair! It’s perfect winter wear. Get those seeing machines or serger cranking( they can be handsewn too, don’t worry)!

I’ll say that wearing swants is not for the faint! They will be something to talk about! It’s a fashion statement, you can be sure of that! I’m excited!

Make your swants here.

Enjoy!
