Tykk Line – Perfect for Summer

Tykk Line by Sandnes Garn should be the yarn you use for your next spring/summer project. Summer fibres sometimes get a bad rep for being hard to knit with. Tough on the hands, sometimes heavy to wear. But Tykk Line by Sandnes Garn is a delight to work with and will squash any hesitation about plant based fibres you may have had. Once you start knitting, you will already be planning your next project with it.

Pattern Ideas

Montpellier Top by Ane Fiskum Sunde

The Montpellier Top is an easy style and would be an quick knit. Constructed from the top down starting with the back neck the big gauge means this will fly off the needles. 

I love this tomato red (called Spicy Orange 3819). It is such a refreshing pop of colour. It would also look lovely in a light or neutral colour. Easy breezy Ice Blue 6531 would be gorgeous. 

Wear by itself on the hot days or style it over a t-shirt for a perfect preppy look.

Winona Dress by Sari Nordlund

A summer dress like no other! Knitting a whole dress might seem like a big project but what a show stopper! 

Knitted top-down the Winona Dress is seamless and the edges are finished with an icord. This keeps everything looking neat. I love the split hem detail which makes sure it’s easy to walk in. 

Once you’re past the top section it’s all plain knitting. A great holiday project. Style with a big hat and an ice-cream.

Davis by Pam Allen

If sleeves are more your thing then look no further than Davis by Pam Allen. Drop shoulder jumpers with tighter sleeves are great for making a slouchy jumper look more put together. 

The Davis jumper would look great over jeans, skirts, and dresses. This would be a wardrobe staple you would reach for all summer long. 

The original design is knitted in Quince & Co Kestel which is a 100% linen aran yarn. The Sandnes Garn Tykk Line is a great substitute for the Kestrel so definitely check out all the other designs in that yarn, of which there are many.

Rota Jumper by Irene Lin

Another dropped shoulder design but this time with a beautiful lace detail. The lace holes in this Rota Jumper will keep the air flowing on a warm day. 

The original pattern is cropped but because it is knitted top down it would not be hard to adjust the length by adding another lace section repeat to the bottom. Many of the people who have posted their versions on Ravelry have done this and it looks great.

This one is top of my list!

Wiesending by Kerstin Bovensiepen

Who doesn’t love a bright and practical accessory. This round bottomed Wiesending bag in this Jelly Bean Green would be the perfect antidote for one of those inevitable dull summer days. 

Knitting in the round from the base the lace section is a pretty detail which elevates an otherwise simple and useful bag. The handles are left quite short but would be adjustable. There is also an option to add a leather strap to make it a cross body bag. 

Pack up your suntan lotion, sunglasses and umbrella and head to the beach.

Deschain by Leila Raven

A delicate lace jumper, Deschain by Leila Raven. The lace detail over the front panel has such a beautiful flow to it, the drape is quite stunning. 

The fanning lace detail will certainly keep you mind occupied as you knit but using such a nice thick aran at this loose gauge it is sure to knit up quickly. 

I think this design would look stunning in the Lavender 4632 colourway. 

This is just a small selection of patterns which would be beautiful in the Sandnes Garn Tykk Line. If you are struggling to find something you like please drop us an email and we’d be happy to help you find a project.
