It may be Spring, but it is a great time to knit your summer styles just in time for warmer weather. Allfreeknitting.com has an eBook "Knitting Free Patterns for Summer" that is free for anyone that would like to create newly knitted apparel to show their summer style. This free pattern book which is downloadable and printable has 7 tops to choose from featuring a versatile poncho to a short sleeve cardigan.
The poncho is great for covering up on a chilly evening or taking a walk on the beach and is shown in a beautiful yellow but it can be made in any color to match your wardrobe. The drop down tunic is as stylish as it is cool and the short sleeve cardigan can be summery as well as used this spring with a long sleeve t shirt placed underneath.
Cotton is always a cool way to go when knitting for summer and the cotton top is perfect in white for that summer tan. Shawls are a must even if you aren't going to the desert, but with the desert shawl you can take it wherever you go this summer to accent your outfit.
Do you just need a vest? Ruffle fronts are in style and the simple mesh pattern knit vest is a must this summer to stay right in style. Do you need a new accent top for work? The textured vest is perfect to accent your favorite button up shirt.
There are 7 patterns with complete in instructions for 7 tops. If you love to knit, you will enjoy making one of these great patterns to lighten up your summer and be in style as only you can create it. View the slideshow of photos for these great summer tops.
