This loose and lacey top Easy Teeasy by Allison Cribbs looks like the perfect easy breezy summer top to throw on once temperatures start to rise. Moya DK would be the perfect match. This light cotton will highlight the lace detail while keeping you cool. We love Moya DK is hand dyed so the colours aren’t completely solid.

This lovely cover up would be the perfect antidote to that feeling when its hot of wanting something to cover your shoulders but not really wanting to put another layer on.  
Linen Vest by Noma Ndlovu sweeps over the shoulders with easy elegance and I love the scalloped detail of the back of the armhole. 
Karin Oberg’s Kalina Linen would be the clear choice for this cardigan. Fabulously cool and once it’s softened up, so comfortable.

Little Huangshan by Xioawei Design is such a sweet and joyful little jumper for kids aged 1 – 10 years. The small amount of colourwork will keep it fun and interesting to knit but with the rest just plain stocking stitch it would be sure to knit up swiftly. 
CaMaRose Summer Wool has a fabulous selection of colours for kids and you could really play wild with colour choice on this one. Kids love to experiment with colour so why not just go for it!
Something a bit different with this next choice. Tunisian crochet! Comfort Tee by Natalie @Detroit Knots is a lovely semi-fitted t-shirt. 
The Moya cotton DK came first into my mind when I saw this but actually the original sample is knitted in wool. If you’re not in a particualary hot bit of the world then something warmer and drapey would be a great idea. The Sandnes Garn Alpaka would fit the bill perfectly.

And last but not least another crochet gem. Magdalena Bialek’s Honey Field Shawl is just magnificent. The details of each section are beautifully unique and who doesn’t love a big shawl?! Wrap yourself in this on your evening stroll and everyone will be wondering where you got it. 
The colour changes of the original sample are really appealing but I think this would look just as lovely in one solid colour. The Onion Nettle Sock would be a great choice. Or if you can’t resist a little speckle go for Walk Collection Cottage merino.
