Accessories are great summery knits, and this stunning lace shawlette is a great option for jazzing up an outfit.
We love knitting animals all year round but these vibrant little cuties are perfect for using up the bright yarns we love to knit with in the summer months!
Add sunshine to your dining room with these colourful placemats – a nice touch when entertaining in the warmer season.
It would be wrong to create this list without including some sunflowers! If you aren't into gardening yourself, create a knitted bunch with our pattern.
Bring the beach to your home with this lovely beach hut doorstop – a great beginner project with simple stitches but a small amount of shaping and easy stripes to help build up your skills.
Summer is all about bright shades of yarn, and Sherbet makes good use of lots of different ones with his gorgeous rainbow fur!
It would be impossible to get through the summer without making yourself a summery craft bag! This beauty doubles up as a beach bag – we love the flip flops on the side!
In summer we all spend a lot more time in our gardens, and I definitely pay a lot more attention to my fish. Knit your own set with these vibrant patterns!

We adore birds and these budgies are just perfect for hanging in your craft room. Make this gorgeous couple, Basil and Bella while you're relaxing in the sun!
Quick knits are great for making while in the garden or at the beach – less to carry around with you but equally as pleasing. These brooches will add fun to any summer clothing!
Create individual products for your trip with our fantastic knitted travel set, with a luggage tag and passport holder. You'll never pick up the wrong suitcase at the airport again!
Possibly the most quintessential British summertime activity, the picnic! Rain or shine, come the summer months we are all seen sitting on a blanket with a sandwich and a flask of tea. Make your picnics extra special this year and knit our wonderful intarsia blanket – you'll never have a soggy bottom again!
Go green this summer with our fabulous allotment tea cosy! Perfect for afternoon tea with your friends on a summer afternoon, paired with a slice of the classic Victoria Sponge – or maybe a carrot cake would be more apt... Yum!
Even if you're not taking a trip this summer, you can do so mentally whilst making our caravan cushion! It is beautiful and unique, a great way to build up your skills with simple stripes and the caravan uses the intarsia method to work on the door and window.
It's important to be sensible when the sun's out, and you can make sure your head is protected with our stunning sun hat pattern.
If we're lucky in Britain the weather does occasionally get warm enough to wear shorts, why not add some glamour to a pair you've got with this beautiful lace trim! Easy way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
