It’s getting hot here in Chicago and I just saw the first firefly of the season last night. This is the perfect time to take a look at lightweight summer knits. I was strolling through Ravelry, as you do, and I happened across this crisp, breezy, linen tee, HØR no. 11. This is the eleventh in a series of linen tops from Danish designer Lone Kjeldsen, and it has handily jumped to the top of my queue.
There’s a lot that is new to me: it’s a garment knit side-to-side. It has an i-cord edge which I’ve never done, but it can’t be too bad, right? I’m a little hesitant because it looks like all-over ribbing which might be slow for me to knit, but the slight shaping at the sleeves is really beautiful. I might have to give it a try. This fingering-weight tee looks like the perfect light top for summer. Since the suggested yarn is linen, it shouldn’t be too hot to have in your lap in June or July. On a side note, Lone also has the most amazing bird sweater for children, but that’s an inspiration for another time!
What are you knitting this summer? I’d love to hear about it.
