Swanky Emu Knits


Sarah at Swanky Emu Knits is doing something revolutionary. Every pattern comes with a spreadsheet to calculate the pattern in your exact measurements, no matter how large or small. Sarah is a self-described “happily queer, unapologetically fat, vintage-loving, goofy, process knitter. … I first learned knitting, embroidery, and sewing skills as a child and have never lost my enthusiasm for handmade things. My absolute favorite is the combination of the practical and the beautiful.” In addition to designing, Sarah teaches her flexible, inclusive sizing method to other designers so that they can easily grade their garment designs.
