The unofficial start to summer is here and I thought we’d celebrate with the magnificent Ewe So Summer shawl! Ewe So Summer was a huge hit as our the 2018 LYS Day project and now that it’s 2019 the pattern is available everywhere. Yay!

Meaghan Schmaltz designed this shawl to have a playful color blend from beginning to end. Even though the pattern looks like it might have stranded knitting, it doesn’t! The shift effect comes from slipping stitches and alternating colors on different rows. Basically, exciting stripes!

Now, let’s talk about my favorite topic: COLOR COMBINATIONS! 😍

I think the possibilities for color mixing is endless. Check out our Ewe So Sporty yarn to find a combo you love or take a look at the kits I created!

Maybe you’d like the original Ewe So Summer combo or maybe you’d like a brighter, cooler palette called Ewe So Spring?

Or perhaps you’d like a moody Ewe So Autumn shawl with rich Charcoal running throughout. Or a super icy Ewe So Wintery shawl might be your favorite to wear!

Take a look at all 8 color combinations on our kit page. There’s even a few tonal options with pretty blues and greens. See Ewe So Summer shawl yarn kits.

Looking for a light and lacy tee for spring and summer? Look no further than the wildly popular Tegna knitting pattern from Boyland Knitworks.

This sweater is a showstopper! From the flowy fabric to the beautiful lace hem, you’ll be sure to wear this tee all year round. Think how nice it will look in the summer and how pretty it would look as a shell under a jacket for work in the fall.

Fluffy Fingering merino yarn from Ewe Ewe would work perfectly for Tegna. The gauge of the sweater is a loose 22 sts over 4” which I get using a size US 6 needle. That means this project would knit quickly and practically fly off the needles!

Any color of Fluffy Fingering yarn would work so well in this project! Choose a neutral like the Charcoal one above or go for a bright Berry, springy Saffron or rich Red Velvet.

Plus, it’s a great price point in Fluffy Fingering. You’ll need 4 to 7 skeins depending on your size which works out to be $40-$70 dollars for a new, gorgeous top you’ll wear again and again.

It’s totally time to think about a fresh tank for spring and summer! I found the Cara tee knitting pattern by Amy Christoffers and I think it seems really relaxing to make and even better to wear.

Cara has a great a-line shape creating a slight flare from the natural waste to the hip making it easy and breezy. I love it paired with the model’s casual jeans, too!

I browsed around on Ravelry and there are lots of cute color combinations. I like the vanilla and pink and the same thing in reverse! You could also do vanilla with purple stripes or what about classic black and white.

Ewe So Sporty yarn from Ewe Ewe would work perfectly for the Cara top. You can go with the great original and use Vanilla as your main color and Sky Blue as the contrasting color stripes. Or try that pink option!

Or maybe you’d like a tonal look. A Lavender top with Iris Blossom stripes? An Aquamarine top with Soft Sage stripes.

You could try a more classic look like Vanilla with rich Red Velvet stripes. What about a preppy Wheat and Midnight Blue top? I could do this all day!
