Puck’s Tunic, by Susanna IC
Who says knitting has to hibernate throughout the warmer months? Certainly not the folks at Interweave Knits. Their Interweave Knits Summer 2017 issue is all the proof we need. But all you wool lovers, don’t despair! This whimsical Shakespeare themed issue also has a healthy sprinkling of warm sweaters and accessories so everyone can have the best of both seasons. Whether it’s intricate lace or bold colorwork you go for, you won’t be disappointed.
The first project that caught my eye was the wonderfully wearable Puck’s Tunic, by Susanna IC. I think this would look lovely knit up in Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK Cotton Yarn – the stitch definition of that yarn would show off the lace panels beautifully.
Hippolyta’s Cover-Up, by Lena Zharichenko
Despite its being slightly less functional than what I generally make, I am super excited to knit the cover-up shown above. And this looks like a relatively easy knit, even though figuring out how to put it on properly might take a little while. I’m already picking out colors of Block Island Blend Yarn. I think I’d only need 5 mini cones for my size…
Malvolio’s Cowl, by Celia Cabodevilla
Remember me mentioning that this isn’t all linen and lace? The cowl above is soft and warm as can be, knit up in Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed Yarn. You just need two skeins of each color! I love the colorwork of this cowl, and I especially love the yarn it’s made from – the Silkroad Aran Tweed has just a little cashmere in it so it’s soft enough to wear around your neck.
Sebastian’s Cardigan, by Irina Anikeeva
Then there’s this masculine, classic cardigan that looks as fun to knit as it would be to wear. The double breasted style gives you options for how you want to wear the collar – upturned, folded over, or anything in-between. This would also look awesome knit out of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed Yarn, with year round colors that look great on everyone. Not to mention, it’d be a luxury to wear.
Plus, with our standard volume pricing, a sweater’s worth automatically gets you 10% off the yarn!
It might be warming up outside, but that sure won’t keep me from making stuff! I’m with Interweave Knits on this one – regardless of what time of year it is, it’s always time to get your knit on.
