Easy Knitting For Summer!
Now that we are a few weeks from summer, and thanks to my son for being born on the first day of that season, so I don't have to wonder when it starts, here are a few easy patterns for the warm weather. Nothing heavy sitting in your lap on those 90+ degree days, just fun, easy stuff that you can take anywhere at all. No excuses for sitting there with idle hands!
So, the next time you're stuck in that shore traffic, break out the knitting!
These little bracelets are knitted up in no time using any of the many fun yarns you can find in any yarn store or department. I used a size 4 and 5 needle, cast on about 9 stitches and knitted every row. Make it to fit little wrists or larger wrist, it's up to you!
The top picture was done using Lion Brand "Fancy Fur" and the bracelets below that were knitted with Lion Brand "Incredible" ribbon yarn. Both yarns are so easy to knit with; when finished, just sew the seam and you're done!
It's not too early to be thinking about Christmas and the other December holidays. Or how about birthday parties, or pool parties, or camp-outs, or for no reason at all?
