Must-Knit Layers for Summer!

Summer_Layering

Warmer temps means lots of maxi dresses and tank tops. And I always need a light layer to throw on top when I encounter indoor A/C or enjoy an evening meal outdoors!

Here are some perfect options to knit now and wear all summer long! (left to right, top to bottom)

  1. #173 Calida Luxe Cocoon Cardigan. Easy-to-wear with so many outfits. Silky yarn in a pretty lace with a cocoon/shrug shape. Available on Ravelry too.

  2. #212 Aure Thing Cardigan (1st photo worn upside-down, 2nd one worn right-side up!). Knit up this versatile short-sleeved cardigan and wear it multiple ways! Dramatically sloped shoulders provide a very flattering fit and the longer length makes it work with many outfits. Available on Ravelry too.

  3. #213 Kimono Cropped Cardi (2 photos). Knitting up a beautiful all-over lace in a chunkier yarn ups the impact! Kimono sleeves and a shaped V-neckline keep it feminine and flattering with a boho flair. Available on Ravelry too.

  4. #175 Diamonds and Lace Top-Down Cardigan. Wonderfully lighter-weight cardigan is a pretty layer for any time. Top-down design allows you to do 3/4 sleeves or full-length to your liking. Available on Ravelry too.

  5. #101 Quick Shawl-Collar Shrug. This little shoulder warmer knits up fast. Available on Ravelry too.

  6. #181 Sapphire Lace Shawl. A versatile triangular shawl with lace and bands of eyelets. Knits up gorgeously in a silky yarn. Available on Ravelry too.
