Summer CKAL begins today!
Are you ready?! Have you swatched yet?
Today is the day we cast on for our Spring Garden Tees or Sea Breeze Tops, and in roughly 8 weeks (by the end of July) we, or the little girls in our lives, should have a lovely hand knit top to wear to the Farmer’s Market, or the park, or even eating ice cream! (Because it WILL be warm enough by then.)
I’ve been checking out all the FO’s on Ravelry for our two tops.
The Spring Garden Tee adult version has some fantastic modification inspiration:
- lace at the hem
- extra lace repeats on the sleeves to make them longer and more ruffled
- contrast color at the neck line, sleeves, and hem (found this mod in the child version FOs)
Sea Breeze Top mods that I love:
So what do you all think? Going to knit the pattern as written, or add your own personal style?
Just to remind everyone, there is a thread for the CKAL on Ravelry called Summer KAL. This is where we can share our projects, ask questions, help each other, and offer encouragement. Jump in and join the fun!
