We've put together nine of our current favorite summer sweater patterns -- shrugs, vests and more in various weights that are just waiting for your hooks and needles.
Round-up of our favorite 9
1) First up is the Olga Shirt by designer Sys Fredens. Love the texture and the puff sleeves -- so cute! Knit in sport weight yarn. (pictured above, top left)
2) The Madame Entrechat Fingering shrug / bolero by Lisa Chemery seems like a perfect wardrobe staple for the summer. Knit in fingering weight yarn (aka sock yarn), it is a great warm weather project, too. (top middle)
3) Loving the Viva Cami by Ksenia Naidyon; I wonder how many I can make? The mosaic knitting is just fab. (top right)
4) This pin-up girl knit sweater channels the fifties with the shapely fit. The Soda Pop Top by Rachel Leggett would be great with short summer skirts and body hugging capris. (middle left)
5) What's not to love about the Vintage '83 knit crop by Andrea Mowry? I haven't worn overalls since the 80's...I had a pair of summer shorts coveralls and used to wear them with one strap up, one strap down. For some reason the "hanging off the shoulder" in a half undressed state was a thing. LOL. (middle middle)
6) The Captiva Crop by Laura Murphy has a nice texture to it and is perfect for an airy warm weather look. Crocheted in a fingering weight yarn. (middle right)
7) The crocheted Best Dressed Vest by April M Gopwani in bulky weight yarn can be layered over a shirt or can be worn on its own, making it a great multi-season piece. (bottom left)
8) The Outline Tank by Jessie Maed is a breezy, roomy-but-still-flattering cropped cami with a lot of style (packed into just a wee bit of handmade fabric). (bottom middle)
9) Is a sexy, boho look on your summer knitting list? The Gilmore Bralette might be just the ticket. Made in a worsted weight yarn in a pattern that shows off your curves. (bottom right)
