Hot Weather Projects
May 29 - July 9
Hot weather may be here, but there’s no need to put away your hooks and needles! When it’s too hot for wool, we turn to cotton and linen blends to spruce up our summer wardrobes. Here are just a few of our ideas for spring and summer projects:
Judy just finished this gorgeous summer tee, pictured above. The pattern is “Edie,” and it’s available for sale on Ravelry. Judy’s model was made with two balls of Schoppel’s Zauberball Cotton. Zauberball Cotton is 100% organic cotton, and comes in a variety of long-striping colors. Edie is knit top-down, and Ravelry photos show it looking great on a variety of shapes and sizes. I can’t wait to get this sweater on my needles!
Another of our favorite go-to yarns for warm weather is Zooey by Juniper Moon. This yarn is a blend of cotton and linen, and has a great thick-and-thin texture. Stop by and see all the great new colors we just got in! This pretty blue tee is called “Derecho,” and the pattern is available on Ravelry.
The “Paulina” top by Coco Knits is a perennial favorite in our shop. Paulina is made with Habu’s Cotton Gima, a unique yarn that gives the top its crisp, structural look. You can wear it over a tank top in even the hottest summer weather. Come on in to pick up a pattern and choose from our variety of Cotton Gima colors.
Even in the summer, there are times when you need an extra layer. The “Sycamore Vest” is a great option. This seamless knit is a great layering piece, adding just the right amount of style and warmth to an outfit. Our model was knit with Soft Linen by Classic Elite, a linen/wool/alpaca blend that’s a perfect all-season yarn for Portland. The pattern is available on Ravelry.
We’re excited to help you choose YOUR perfect summer project! Come on in and let us hook you up!
