We champion sweater knitting in the summer (despite the eye rolls from non-knitters), but we don’t always recommend projects with intricate colorwork. Hear us out. Between travel and other on-the-go knitting, less is more when you pack your project bag. Simply, choosing one-color projects minimizes the yarn you have to take along and keep track of. One-color projects keep you from having to make tough color changing decisions when you’re relaxing at the lake and removes the stress of yarns getting tangled when you’re on a plane. Plus, when you don’t have long stretches of dedicated knitting time like you do in the winter, one-color projects just allow you to pick up and knit, instead of leafing through a pattern to figure out what color comes next. To keep your needles clicking in the most stress-free way, we found four new, summer-worthy sweater projects that use one, solid colorway in a most stunning way.
