Delicious Summer Knit Tops

When you are so hot you can only knit, you are still on time to finish and wear any of these tops. There’s still plenty of summer left.

I have knit many tops this summer, for the mother in law, for the sisters in law, for my best friend… Linen, cotton and silk. Let me highlight the ones I have enjoyed knitting the most.

Violeta Top by Devanalana

Violeta

Violeta is the first one I’ve made this season. No slevees but still flattering for those of us of a certain age. The lace on the neck and bottom is a lot easier than it looks.

Jo

Jo is an effortless top, the most trouble I had was the i-cord straps. It knits up really fast and your youngest teen will rave for it. Free pattern.

Tulip Tank Top by Purl Soho

Tulip Tank Top

Tulip Tank Top is the one I found more complex, because of the bottom short rows that also make up for a double flap back. It came out very heavy on my cotton and it pulls the neck down at the back. I’d suggest you use linen or silk. The construction is very ingenious, but you’ll get sick of purling 🙂 Free pattern.

Gabriella

Gabriella is such a hit! Everyone that sees it asks for one. No sleeves, with a fan lace pattern in the neck, and furious colors, I wish I had had it when I was 25 years younger and 25 kilos (50 lbs) lighter…

Slope by Shibui knits

Slope

Slope is wearing me down… so many miles of stockinette already, tiny stitches, short rows and a splitty cotton yarn that creates stitches out of nowhere that I have to manually fix one by one. It can be used as a summer sleeveless top or as a vest for fall with a shirt underneath.
