I knit the Slanting Gretel by Petra Manis and I wear it all year round. My favorite time to wear it, though, is in the summer, because it's light and swingy and super flattering. I get tons of compliments on it. I used a cotton-acrylic blend yarn, which is great for warm-weather wear. This versatile tee is easy to knit, too. It's a bottom up raglan with seed stitch and cables. It was a quick, fun knit. Rene Dickey's Summer Pelisse is a sweet little girl's summer jacket with delicate lace motifs. The pelisse's form—halfway between a coat and a dress—inspired Rene to create this fanciful cardigan for her daughter to wear over a summer dress. Generous in length and width, the body of the pelisse is knitted in a beautiful, yet easy to learn, lace stitch pattern. So darling!
