Three summer tops I'd like to knit.
I don't know why I suddenly have such a strong desire to knit myself a summer top. I spend about 94% of the summer in my work uniform and if I'm not at work, I'm either asleep or at Walmart. It's also extremely hot and humid during the summers here in Virginia. The idea of wearing anything heavier than a cotton t-shirt is just... unthinkable. But despite all that, I have the urge to knit myself a summer top so of course I went Ravelry browsing.
This is Novel-T designed by Laura Nelkin. I love this top's simple lines and the strip of lace running under the arms and across the shoulders.
This one is Sleeveless Slipover from Churchmouse Yarns. The design seems so basic and not all that interesting but.... The pattern is written so that you can knit any length from a cropped top to a full length dress. I just love that! I also love that you could wear it with or without the shirt underneath. It may be a simple looking top, but this versatile design could be worn all year long. It's also a design I could easily see myself wearing.
And Davit, designed by Amy Palmer. Although the shaping wouldn't look great on me, this one is my favorite of the three. I just love the simple front and that crossed back. Absolutely love it! It might not look all that great on me, but I bet it would be terrific on my daughter.
Now the hard part. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
