Summer knitting invites easy stitches with June Blooms. Inspired by my gramma June’s dying words to me, “keep knitting; keep designing,” it contrasts her love of simple garment design with the vibrant colors of a day in the garden. June Blooms works beautifully over tank tops and long-sleeved shirts alike.
The tech edited and test knit easy level pattern is fully written with a schematic. A video tutorial is available on the Knit Eco Chic blog.
