Army Of Knitters' Spring Collection '11: Flamenco

Inspired by the music, dance and costumes of Spanish Flamenco Heather Dixon's colorful collection aims to help you out of the Winter doldrums and get your temperatures rising!


The way a dancer moves their head is very important in Flamenco, Dixon's designs start with the polka dot headband Gitano. It features fair isle color work, an adjustable button fastening, rose embellishment and the pattern is written in two sizes, work yours in your favorite color scheme.

Any one of these sexy tops will make you a hit on the dance floor and shine during any occasion. A seamless, top-down, raglan pullover with lace panels that shape the waist and hips at front and back make Cante very special.




Paying tribute to the Andalusia community in Spain where Flamenco was been born, Dixon's bold & colorfully striped Andalusia cardigan is completely seamless, top down, wrap style with a striped belt.


While Seville is a cropped, open front cardi with a polka dot pattern and three layers of lace sleeves, a great layering piece to take you through hot and steamy summer nights!



The sexy bra top Caliente can be worn on its own or with cardigans, camis & lightweight tops and it was designed to be worn with Dixon's Flamenco style skirt, Baile.


Baile is a seamless, top-down skirt with lace ruffles that give you drama when you move and you have the option of knitting it full length or adding only one lace ruffle for a shorter look.
