StevenBe Workshops Now on Sale!
Knitting to keep warm seems to be a common trend. But once the temperatures start rising, knitting to keep cool can be lots of fun too! Knitting garments or accessories for the summer basically comes down to the the yarn you are using and the fiber content of that yarn. Picking the right yarn is the easy part, but trying to choose what to knit for the warmer seasons seems to be where everyone has trouble. I have compiled a list of 11 gorgeous knits for the summer to keep your needles busy.
