Love of Knitting, Summer 2016
Summer knitting happens so fast! We’ve collected 20 great projects to help you keep your cool in the heat or to ward off chilly evening breezes. All these patterns use summer yarns–lightweight wools, plant fibers (cotton, linen, bamboo, and rayon) or blends of plant and animal fibers.
Our series on fit continues with Carol J. Sulcoski, who provides great tips for fitting sleeveless garments. Read about gradient yarns and the subtly shaded colorways they produce. And as always, we’ve included a simple swatch-cloth; its ladybug in knit and purl stitches is the perfect beginner project.
