Some people may associate knitting with heavy sweaters and scarves, but the latest issue of Interweave Knits is making me wish for more summer knitting. Visit the shop to see all the patterns!
Dress up summer layers with the Al Fresco Camisole. This one involves a bit of crocheting to create the seams and straps, but it is no more complicated than picking up a dropped stitch. Make it extra slinky in Baby Bamboo, a bamboo and wool blend that is soft and cool.
If you are looking for a great summer sweater, the Adriatic Cardigan features a striped lacy pattern in a classic silhouette that can be thrown on over your favorite warm-weather outfits. It is perfect for the season in Berroco Linsey, a cotton and linen blend in a soft palette.
What is better to knit in the heat than a little luxury for your toes? Cast on for the Hourglass Lace Socks in your favorite handpainted yarn. These socks are a faster knit on size 2 needles, and will be spectacular in Nichole by Schaefer Yarn, a heavy fingering weight yarn in colors inspired by “Memorable Women.” Try the Elizabeth Zimmerman colorway!
An interesting neckline and a seamless, top-down construction are the elements that make this top a joy to knit and wear. The Cumulus Tee has a flattering tunic length that dresses up a summer outfit. Knit it in Hempathy for an easy care garment with an elegant drape.
