This sweater came about after years of searching for the perfect cotton summer sweater and failing miserably to find it. I decided to just make it.
It features an easy-to-memorize stitch pattern, knit at a loose gauge for a lacy effect. It's light and airy and perfect to toss on over a bathing suit after a day at the beach, or paired with a camisole for date night (I assume people still go on dates, but I haven't left the house without children in so long, I can't be sure.).
If feel incredibly honored to be included in this collection because the other designs in it are simply AMAZING! If I had all the knitting time in the world, I'd cast on for the adorable Backbone vest by Kirsten Singer right away:
And Teresa Gregorio's darling Beach House crop top too:
(Ok, so after 2 kids, crop tops are maybe not my thing anymore, but that's what camisoles are for. Camisoles and Spanx.)
Not only are the patterns in this issue fantastic, but Holla Knits is actually a full-fledged magazine now, with fun articles and tutorials too! So go buy a copy immediately.
And don't miss the Holla Knits Summer 2015 blog tour! Here's the schedule--be sure to stop back here on June 22, when I'll share a closer look at Annapolis and give away a FREE copy of the pattern to one lucky reader!
