Summer isn’t really known as prime knitting season, but the truth is there are a lot of great things you can knit — and wear — when the weather is warm.
Knits for Summer by Kristi Simpson is a booklet with 10 ideas for knit accessories you can use in the summertime. The projects include:
- barefoot sandals
- seaside coasters
- lacy cape
- rose headband
- scoop neck top
- anchor pillow
- striped tote bag
- long vest with eyelets (my favorite!)
- allover eyelet tunic
- lace wrap with fringe
You can check out all the patterns on the Leisure Arts website.
This is a fun little booklet for those who live in warmer climates or like to have something fun and seasonally appropriate to knit in the summer. All the patterns are rated easy, which makes it a good choice for newer knitters who want to venture into a little bit of lace, colorwork or simple garments.
About the book: 32 pages, paperback, 10 projects. Published 2017 by Leisure Arts, suggested retail price $9.99.
