The Summer Sweater is the second design in the Kelbourne Woolens Year of Sweaters. This knit tee shirt pattern is designed in our perfect lightweight summer yarn, Mojave, a crisp and cool blend of cotton and linen.

The Summer Sweater is as fun to knit as it is to wear – Courtney had so much fun designing this one! With breezy lace sleeves and a soft V-neck shape, Courtney based the design loosely on Elizabeth Zimmermann’s popular Hurry-Up-Last-Minute Sweater (aka the December Sweater) from Knitter’s Almanac, but with summer fun in mind. This lightweight summer t-shirt is worked in the round from the top-down so you can choose to go cropped or knit it longer for more coverage.
