As much as we want to stay cuddled up in our cozy sweaters, the weather has other plans for us. Temperatures are warming up, which means it’s time to swap bulky weight for fingering weight yarn and choose short-sleeved tops over long-sleeved options. Today’s round-up of knitted short sleeve tops are teasing our thoughts of potential summer outfits. Challenge yourself to make several #todaysknitoutfit with just one sweater.

Scotch Broom by Wool & Pine

A short sleeve top you won’t want to take off, Scotch Broom is a top-down knitted top that has a cool, lacework boatneck yoke. The broomstick stitch pattern offers a unique and textured look. Knit Scotch Broom with positive ease for a relaxed fit and as long or as short you’d like. Available in 11 sizes, this top calls for 290 – 900 yards of fingering weight yarn.

Heart on Her Sleeve by Krista Ann

Wear your heart on your sleeve as Mindy Kaling did on The Mindy Project. From knitwear (and costume!) designer Knitsy Knits, the short sleeve top pattern from the popular show was just released to Ravelry. Knit it without or without the heart, but either way, you’ll need 1000-2125 yards of fingering weight yarn to knit one of the six sizes. This labor of love – you’ll knit on small needles and test your skills with lots of cable columns – comes with a big reward. Not only will you love wearing it, but you can pretend to a TV doctor.

Filipa Tee by Vanessa Coscarelli Black

Cast on this cool, boxy tee from Knit One Crochet Too. Lightweight yarn paired with eyelets across the sleeves, yoke, and hemline make this cropped top one you’ll want to wear with shorts, jeans, or even a skirt. Available in 10 sizes, this top calls for 510-1275 yards of fingering weight yarn.

Spring Hopes by Annie Lupton

This short sleeved tee is inspired by Spring with its stranded color work pattern. Positioned around the hemline the two-color floral panel is set against one-color stockinette body and a textured rib neckline. Knit one of 10 sizes with 845-2200 yards of fingering weight yarn.
