Summer Knitwear

Summer Knitwear. The Gift Of Knitting.

Happy Sunday! As the temperatures are rising in my corner of the world, I decided to share with you three knits that I know I will wear this summer a lot. Hot weather never stopped me either from wearing knitwear or making one. I am actually very grateful for the change of seasons which gives us, knitters, the reason to try new fibers and take a break from wool.

Wool and The Gang got me covered with their fun pima cotton and ribbon yarn. If you remember, I finished Riviera skirt more than three years ago and it is still in perfect state. It was my very first collaboration with yarn company and I will always be thankful to WATG family for believing in me since the very beginning. I am pairing it with a simple t-shirt, a great easy look for a summer day off and farmer’s market grocery shopping.

Stone Washed ribbon yarn was turned into crop top last summer and I’ve been wearing it inside the house almost every day, it is just so easy to throw on. For a more conservative look to wear outside, I am pairing it with loose high waisted cotton/linen pants, super comfortable! You can find a FREE pattern for it here – How to Knit a Crop Top.

Rain has been my most worn sweater lately. Easy to pair with absolutely anything – office pants, jeans and shorts. Pima cotton by We Are Knitters is a pure delight next to the skin, feels so fresh and with a nice drape. I will wear it to death! But so far it is holding up very nicely.

I am finishing one more sweater in Daisy that will hopefully share with you soon and I hope it will also become a great addition to my summer knits!

What are your relationships with summer and knitwear? Do you put your knits away until the weather cools down or take out your cotton and linen yarn out of your stash to play with?

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

    I love all the three cotton items, they look so gorgeous on you! I wear a lot of cotton knits in the summer, but mostly cardigans. I’ll definitely continue knitting in the summer, I’m planning at least one new cardigan and probably a big shawl.

      Thank you, Carmela!! Yes, cardigans are so easy to pair with summer cotton dresses, great layering piece for cool summer nights.

    You look smoking hot girl!!!! 😉
    Just yesterday we hit above 30° and it isn’t even May! A very hot summer is in sight and I’m looking for patterns for my cotton yarn but still haven’t found one that will serve me through the following months 😕

      Haha, thank you, Zeta! Wow, it is super hot. I am actually worried as the water isn’t cold as it is supposed to be and the warmer the water, the stronger the hurricane season… For this kind of heat only super thin and light yarns might serve..
