Swift is part of the book JOURNEY, a collaboration of hand knits from designers Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook inspired by the journey of self-discovery, independence and the path back to yourself.


Featuring a geometric lace pattern with textural details and fun angular lines, the Swift hat is as enjoyable to knit as it is to wear.
