Coups de cœur #2: Knitted tops

Summer may not be here yet, but spring is well and truly here. It’s time to get ready for the warmer weather, so if you like it, start knitting a little top for the warm days ahead.

To tell you the truth, knitted tops aren’t my thing. I’m so cold (and sunburn so easily 🦞) that I rarely part with my long sleeves, even in the height of summer. Especially since cotton and linen didn’t really win me over the only times I tried knitting with them (a bunch of years ago, and I’m sure yarns have come a long way since then, so I’ll have to try again one of these days!) That doesn’t stop me from regularly falling in love with patterns written by my colleagues. If you’re interested in knitting a lightweight top for summer, but don’t know where to start looking for patterns, I’ve put together a small selection below. And for those who prefer long sleeves, some look like they have easily extendable sleeves 😉

My propensity for clicking on the favorites button is legendary (yes, I have over 8000 favorites on Ravelry, one of these days I’ll have to sort them out 🙈 ), so I haven’t been able to include all the patterns I’ve selected here, but you’ll be able to find them in a bundle I created for the occasion. I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for among all these pretty models. 🌱🌸

Do you like knitted tops? Do you prefer them with short sleeves or as tank tops?
