Summer knitting patterns

Knitting patterns for summer knitting!

At Önling, we love summer knitting - both wearing them and making them! We love wearing light summer tops and dresses in the summer heat, and to sit outside on a summers day and work with lovely, light summer yarns.

We have a large selection of summer knitting patterns, which is expanding every summer with more beautiful designs, new yarns and several beautiful color combinations.

Summer knitting patterns for ladies

At Önling, it is our mission to create your favorite knitwear - and we especially focus on creating designs for women. Therefore we have many summer knitting patterns for women. In this category we have a large selection of different Danish knitting designers and categories. An obvious and very popular category in light summer knitting is of course patterns for knitted tops and t-shirts. Here you will find both knitting patterns for t-shirts with short sleeves, and very nice summer tops with both narrow or wide straps. Some of the summer knitting patterns for women are decorated with pretty details such as lace patterns, beautiful structured knitting or cool stripes.

Knitting with light summer yarns

When you are looking for yarn for your summer knitting patterns, it is of course important to find a good summer yarn. We always recommend yarns made of natural materials that help the body breathe and can regulate the temperature. An obvious and always popular way to go for summer knitting is of course cotton yarns, as cotton is light, breathable and good at absorbing moisture. Cotton yarns are available in many beautiful and durable colors, they can typically be machine washed - so summer knitting in cotton gives a very useful result.

Cotton can also be combined with other materials, thus drawing on the best from several worlds. We can especially recommend the combination of cotton and linen, like in our own yarn quality Önling No 21, as this combination gives an extra light summer yarn with a pretty melange effect. Cotton can also be combined with wool, which can be especially useful in the changeable Danish summer. Wool is incredibly good at heat regulation, and therefore you should not  overlook the thin wool yarns, when looking for yarn for your summer knitting patterns. We can especially recommend Önling No 12, which is a light combination of wool and cotton, available in many pretty summer colors.
