Gone are the days when handknits were suitable only for the colder months. Fantastic summer yarns in cool fibres such as cotton, linen, bamboo and silk have changed our approach to garments, and it’s now possible to knit yourself an entire warm-weather wardrobe – everything from beach cover-ups to elegant evening wraps.
Here at LK we love the vitality of summer knits, and we’ve teamed up with Stylecraft Yarns to bring you a collection of light and lovely designs throughout the season – look out for the Knit For Summer logo in each issue!
