Designer of the Day…Swank Dollar

Hooray for chunky and colorful knits! And that is exactly why I wanted to feature Annie Larson’s Swank Dollar – which is an awesome collection of knitted sweaters, bags, and pants. Plus, it appears that Larson is a Minneapolis native, so that was another cool reason to feature Larson…she’s nearby!

I really love  a good knit and Annie Larson’s creations are just that. From what I’ve gathered, she uses a knitting machine and she loves color. She’s used many different knit patterns in her unique pieces including Fair Isle and Geometic patterns. Plus, her knits are available in everything from knitted leggings, shortalls, caps, and pencil skirts.

I’m totally going to contact her and see how much a custom piece goes for…or maybe we can even collaborate! Which ever happens, I have got to own a piece of Swank Dollar!
