waves – a summer design

Living in Wales one isn’t often inclined to knit short sleeved summer garments. Even at the height of summer the weather is pretty unpredictable and even on a sunny day a light, but long sleeved garment, is often the most sensible option.

Last year however we were all pleasantly surprised by prolonged hot sunny days and we are of course hoping for a repeat this year.

Meet Waves, a lightweight short sleeved T-Shirt style jumper, featuring a fun, yet simple and elegant large lace border. The perfect garment for spring and summer, it pairs beautifully with a summer dress, shorts or lightweight jeans. The length can easily be adjusted for a change in style and if long sleeves are more your thing, you can easily adjust the sleeves too. Just remember: Changing the length might require more yarn.

This is a speedy garment and a keen and motivated knitter , with enough knitting time at their disposal, can easily finish this in a weeks time.

I used a beautifully drapey Cotton/Viscose/Linen mix yarn by Sandnes for my sample, but any soft summer yarn in your favourite colour will work.

The pattern is available from my Ravelry store now and an automatic discount of 10% will be applied until midnight Friday, 31. May 2019.

I have taken the difficult decision to offer my patterns in one size only from now as I can no longer sustain the expense of having test knitters for all different sizes. As I cannot afford to pay a Technical Editor I have to carefully work out the Maths for 7-8 different sizes and that alone is very time consuming and then there is the worry that it might not be correct. As a one-woman show I have to think hard about every penny spent and rather than increasing the price for each of my garment patterns I have decided to offer all my new patterns to fit bust sizes 38/40 only, starting with this design.

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support for my little business.

Heike xo.
