Warm Weather Knits
Paying attention to shapes, details, pattern stitches and fibers that work especially well for summer, Deborah Newton presents more than 20 sweaters and accessories to knit. The designs use a variety of cool fibers and blends, from classic cottons/linens/blends and lightweight "cool-wool" to new "green" organic and recycled yarns, as well as specialty yarns/blends such as bamboo and soy. Known for her finesse with textured knit stitch patterns and finishing details, Deborah has geared the designs toward a stylish audience, young as well as older, with sporty designs as well as dressy. There are summer cardigans and pullovers; two twin sets (one whisper-weight for hottest days); coordinated family sweaters for man, woman, and child; variations on the indispensable tank top; a tunic worked two ways; a dress; two shawls, and a market bag.
