14 Simple Summer Knits

Even if you’re a pro knitter, simple, minimalistic shapes with little or no shaping are the new trend in the world of fashionable knitting. And hey, let’s be honest, sometimes you just want a straightforward pattern to help you wind down with a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) at the end of a long week. So here’s a selection of our favourites for you to try even if you’ve only just learnt one end of a needle from the other. We think they’re hip, fab, trendy, hot to trot!
