This summer pillow is a fun sampler of various knitting techniques, including seed stitch, stockinette, reverse stockinette, garter stitch, eyelets, and twisted traveling stitches. These techniques combine to create a sandcastle motif on the front of the cushion cover and a seashell motif bordered by wavy lines of eyelets and garter stitch on the back. In addition to featuring a wide variety of textural stitches, this design is also a great opportunity to gain experience at working from charts, because the pattern is fully charted. Read More

Introducing the beach cardigan: Sloane is the official layer of summer sunsets. 100% linen yarn makes a perfectly weathered texture and Qunice & Co’s Kestrel does not disappoint. The ribbon structure of this yarn adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. Not only does this yarn knit up quickly at 4 stitches per inch, the resulting fabric has incredible drape and gets better with every wash and wear. An easy fit you can wear off the shoulder for casual shoreline strolls. The cardigan is worked in rows from bottom up. Both front ribbing bands are continued and worked until a three-needle bind off combines at the center back neck. After a few shaping short rows, the sleeves are worked in-the-round down to the cuffs. Read More
