3 Sizzling Summer Tops

As our weather gets warmer, our knitting focus shifts to lightweight tops in natural fibres that will keep us cool! Wherever you are in the world, warm weather knits are a joy to wear and fun to make!

Tegna by Caitlin Hunter

Absolutely gorgeous! This easy to wear tee is fun to knit and has a wide scoop neck and gentle A-line shape which gives plenty of positive ease – always a good thing in the warm weather! Knit it in your favourite 4ply / fingering weight yarn – my suggestion here is Rowan Summerlite 4ply, a beautifully fine cotton that will drape beautifully and keep you deliciously cool. There are over 20 shades to choose from.

This gorgeous yoked tee is a cool, empire line swing top with lots of positive ease, knitted in the utterly gorgeous BC Garn Tussah Tweed, which is a 3ply 100% silk yarn. Gardis is inspired by the Pale Mountains of the Italian Dolomites and knits from the top down in a fabulous 12 sizes from XXXS to XXL2.   Deliciously comfortable to wear!

    I’ve tried to down load a pattern and it says can’t open.

    That happened to me from another site. After much pain and questioning I eventually sent it to myself via email. That seemed to do the trick…on that occasion anyway.

    I know it can be really frustrating.

    Good luck.
