As we round the July corner into mid-summer, we crave some simplicity and comfortability with our knitting. We want a project that can stand the test of a busy summer – you know, when you can only get a few rows in at a time – while being a good travel companion. While a sock project typically checks off those needs, a group of designers has changed our mind. Discover these four patterns that have gotten a makeover from their designer- two saw their original size shrunk down to toddler size, while one cardigan was cropped and a shawl became a cowl. These four patterns might be new, but they have the same stitch patterns, style, and vibe of the patterns that came before them. Perfect for summer knitting.
