Master knitter and dancer Stephen West of westknits shows us how to make Swants, aka sweater pants, in his detailed online tutorial. He takes us through his entire process of “transforming woolly sweaters into sassy pants.”
A pair of swants a day keeps the chilly chills away.
Your bum will thank you and friends may spank you.
Envelop your thighs with cozy knit stitches.
You’ll be the envy of all in your stylish new britches.
Swants require courage, attitude, and spunk.
Every pair you wear is a bingo, yahtzee, slam dunk!
Strangers may sneer, but have no fear
Because you are a pioneer discovering a new frontier.
