The Fan & Cable Swagger is a shorter and slimmer version of the Fan & Cable Swingcoat. The original swingcoat style has the fullness falling from the shoulder - as the image in cream. The back image cropped in shows how this swagger style sit to the waist and then fits like a jacket from the armhole to shoulder. If you are classic pear shape with a narrow shoulder this is the style for you. Chest ease is 2-3"/ 5-7cm - the swagger style over the hips plus 17-20"/ 43-51cm - see below per kit.
The knitting kit includes the yarn, knitting instructions with both graphed (shown) and written stitch pattern. Buttons are also included in the knitting kit, for the three flecked colours the kit includes the round shell buttons, the solid coloured yarns have square handmade buttons.
Swagger styling has fullness over the hip, but not as generous as a swingcoat as Fan & cable Swing and Diamond Cable swing.
Tension: The sleeves are knitted first, this allows you to double check your tension and become familiar with the stitch pattern. The Sleeve instruction includes a graph and row by row instructions for the Fan and Bobble stitch pattern and cables. The instructions for the body of the garment are supported by diagrams. Decrease shaping is worked into each panel adjacent to the cable, the Fan and Bobble pattern remains a constant number of stitches and rows, whilst the number of stitches before and after the Fan decreases hem to shoulder.
Online support offered throughout.
