Summer is coming while the time is always right for some creative work it can be hard to get into knitting when the days are heating up. The answer is to switch out wool for super-sized cotton and knit on!
We’ve got some great summer knitting projects using Loopy Mango Chunky Cotton yarn. Cotton yarn is about 4mm in diameter so it knits up very quickly and it has a beautiful sheen. We’ve got the best selling colours in stock: Ginger (a gorgeous rusty orange), Indigo Blue, Stormy Night (Dark Grey), Misty Morning (Light Grey) and of course Pearl White.
This summer is all about the fringe. The Cotton Fringe Top DIY Kit is perfect for a hot summer's day or dress it up over a T-Shirt or crisp white linen top. This pattern is great as you can make with our without the fringe.
Fringe Top DIY Kit with fringe and without.
Also a favourite for a balmy summer night (or to combat an overactive air conditioner at work!) is the Cotton Fringe Shawl DIY Kit.
And because you can never have too many fringy things the Fringe Bag DIY Kit is the perfect accessory. And we also have a gorgeous Cotton Beanie DIY Kit for if that air-conditioning is up way too high !
All our kits come with Loopy Mango knitting needles and instructions. These are easy projects: all you need to learn is cast on/cast off, with knit, purl and some increasing and decreasing stitches - all easy and all with tutorials. And if you already have the needles, just order enough balls to complete your project and then ask for the pattern in the comments section.
