Enjoy Summer’s Dwindling Days with a Cool Knitted T-Shirt Pattern

When I caught my first glimpse of a knitted T-shirt pattern, I thought it was one of the cleverest ideas for a knitted garment. When we think of knitted tops, we usually think of sweaters – warm, cozy, perfect for a chilly fall or winter day. We don’t often think of cool, light, comfortable tops perfect for a summer’s day. And yet, all the patterns listed in this article are just that. Most are made to be constructed with summertime fibers – cotton, linen, hemp, or a blend. (A few are made with merino wool, though in DK or lighter weights.) All have short sleeves and are specifically designed to have a certain airy quality. Thanks to Ravelry.com’s pattern browser, I now offer these delightful summertime knitted T-shirt patterns to you! Knit one for yourself or for someone you love.
