Get a jump on Summer!

Get a jump on Summer!

I know in some parts of the country people are still wearing sweaters. Not down in South Texas! We are already looking at tanks and shorts!

To help you (and me) out, I did a little research to seek out my first summer pattern. Whether you choose to sew or knit, here are a few simple patterns that are ready to go.

The Willow Tank from Grainline Studio is sweet and simple and the best part… it can be a dress too! PDF or Paper Patterns available.

The Gemma Tank from Made by Rae is also simple and sweet with a great shirttail hem. This is a PDF pattern only. Download and go!

The Notched Hem Tank is a great free! knitting pattern from Purl Soho. I just love the side detail that makes it much more interesting than a regular tank. It would be great made even longer as a tunic.

Last but definitely not least is the Beekeeper’s Tank by Nicole Montgomery. A knitting pattern with a special detail in the yoke. It has a great shape for skimming right over any not so skinny areas. 

So, now that you have a few options, what will your first summer knitting or stitching be? We would love to see them at YARN Texas!
