The Top 10 Summer Sweater Patterns of 2014

The warm weather is upon us and summer is almost here! Keep cool but don’t stop knitting with these light, airy, summer sweaters!

I chose the following sweaters because they represent the truest form of summer to me. The relaxed nature of each pattern practically begs to be worn out into the sunshine. Knitting with lightweight yarns and using larger needles is one great way to make the loose, flowing fabrics that breathe and feel incredible on your skin during the warmer months. If you’re anxious to get outside try one of the sleeveless patterns for a quicker knit.

Knitting garments for the summer doesn’t just have to be practical, it can be beautiful too! Each of these patterns has a little something special about them to keep your summer knitting interesting and when you’re finished you’ll be right on trend.
