Portland is finally bursting out of a long, cold, snowy winter and a long, cold, gray spring. For a knitter, that doesn’t mean it’s time to put away the needles. It means it’s time to make summer garments.
This incredibly easy-to-make warm-weather sweater by The Brown Stitch is a dream. It has two seams only—on the tops of the sleeves. I used about 2/3 of my Red Heart black one-pounder because I’m not a yarn snob, though a wool blend or cotton/bamboo would be nice. I love the plushness resulting from the simple garter stitch and a toss in the dryer. I’ve worn this about five times in two weeks. It’s my new favorite!
