Swing, tent, trapeze sweater pattern?
Posted 17 April 2005 - 11:08 AM
The style is also called a 'trapeze' or 'tent' design.
This style was popular in the 70's, (now my age is showing! lol) - when they had 'tent dresses' or 'trapeze dresses' -- which were basically just a really full, loose triangular shape - or a REALLY exaggerated A-line. (Some of the really full ones were almost a half circle when laid flat).
The end result is a sweater jacket that fits loosely through the body, but has nice lines and fit through the top due to the decreases/increases.
Does anyone, by chance, have a pattern for a swing/trapeze/tent type sweater/jacket/coat?
Thanks so much!

There is a crochet version, too!
I don't know if this helps or not, but when I saw it this morning it reminded me that someone was inquiring about trapeze coats....
I know it is knit, but maybe it will help.

For some reason the swing coat patterns seem really scarce.
Do LOVE the links each gave! Thank you again!
