Summer 2015

Your summer wardrobe made easy! Tees, vests, and layering pullovers are the way to go as the temps start rising. With these versatile pieces it’s easy to throw one over a simple tank or tee and your well worn shorts to give every outfit a more finished look without adding too much warmth. Heavy on the openwork and playful details while keeping the shapes and style easy and classic, this collection has something for even the most ardent cold weather knitter.

Courtney Spainhower and Kirsten Singer have designed breezy vests with unique construction and braid details but that couldn’t be more different from each other. You’ll want one of Teresa Gregorio’s mesh cropped tank with garter stitch details in every color. Melina Martin Gingras’s two color tee with tons of texture is a fun knit and an easy, classic shape for summer. For cooler nights, throw on Allyson Dykhuizen’s dolman sleeved, high low hem pullover, or Kristen Jancuk’s all over knot stitch pullover – both sweaters great in cotton or wool for more versatility.
