Everybody needs a garment that will go with pretty much anything and is suitable for summer - Lucinda Ganderton's capelet does just that. Once you've got the basic technique, you'll be knitting them in all different colours for each of your holiday outfits!

Say it with stripes

We love Siân Brown's vibrant knit, it's a great option for beginners as it's worked mostly in stocking stitch and the design can be adapted to use fewer shades and wider stripes if preferred.

A prime example of the phrase 'business in the front, party in the back', this top does just that with all of the intricate design patterned onto the back. Oozing effortless style, this garment would be great paired with a vintage skirt.
