Contrary to belief you can definitely wear knits in the summer time. If you use cotton based yarns, you will have a fashionable knit jumper that you can wear even on the hottest of days. Here are a few lovely summer knitting patterns to make and add to your summer wardrobe.

1930s Chic Jumpers I love Theodora Goes Wild’s blog. She has lots of patterns available. This is one of my favourites.
1940s Marguerite Pullover One of my regular go to for vintage patterns is The Vintage Pattern files. There are knitting, crochet and sewing patterns available.
1940s Short Sleeve Blouses Va-Voom Vintage is a blog I check on the regular. She is also a curvy girl and has a large variety of patterns and shows sewing write-ups.
1950 Happy Time Sweater Free Vintage Knitting has thousands of free knitting patterns.
1951 Jack Frost Pullover Pattern One of the things that draws me to Jack Frost patterns — is the spooky looking photography. Always shadowy with a pinch of Film Noir.
