Are you a knitter in the winter and a gardener in the summer? Are your busy summer days filled with wonderful things to do? When you’re all done with your day and you’re relaxing in the fabulous summer evenings, do you think about knitting? Why not try knitting the warm weather fiber blends of cool cotton, linen, rayon, hemp yarns into something fabulous?
Here are three really fun projects for you. All are completely reversible scarves that may be knit into wraps or shawls, simply by adding more yarn. Instructions for size changes are included in each pattern.
They are easy and fast to work up, each one exploring a drop stitch application.
Spring & Summer yarns are comfortable in your hands and make perfect “social knitting” projects. You won’t even get messed up if you have that second glass of wine!
You may not think you’ll ever wear a scarf or shawl in the summertime, however, remember those two-cool air-conditioned spaces in office buildings and stores or the occasional chilly evening breeze after you’ve spent many hours in the sun. You need a little something to toss around your neck or lightly drape over your shoulders. These patterns are great for those times.
Have fun embracing the dropped stitch! Thank you and Enjoy!
