Summer is in high gear here on the east coast. The days are hot, the nights are hot. It’s just all around hot. That means outfits that look great without a lot of effort and aren’t too close fitting for a breezy feel are my go-to.

The kits below are some of my personal favorites that pass my criteria. Do you have a favorite of your own?

1) The Sandbar Cardigan

The Sandbar Cardigan Kit in 24/7® Cotton

Transport yourself to the island getaway of your dreams when you slip on the Sandbar Cardi. Worn as a beach coverup or over a casual evening outfit, it’s the perfect finishing touch to your vacation wardrobe.

2) The Saratoga Poncho Top

The Saratoga Poncho Top Kit in LB Collection® Cotton Bamboo

Whether your summer plans include a music festival, a cruise or a backyard BBQ, the Saratoga Poncho Top will give you an effortless chic piece to toss on for the next adventure. The construction of this easy poncho-style top couldn’t be simpler, but the changing stitch patterns will keep you engaged the whole way through. The LB Collection Cotton Bamboo yarn gives this lacy top a perfect warm-weather texture and flattering drape.

3) The Calla Lily Cardigan

The Calla Lily Cardigan kit in LB Collection® Cotton Bamboo

Crochet this beautiful and romantic cardigan that can be worn two different ways! One long rectangle is crocheted and seamed in a special way to create this unique garment using the airy and elegant bobble trellis stitch. The cotton bamboo yarn makes this cardigan incredibly soft and perfect for year-round weather. Wear it as a cardigan or a shrug over your favorite dresses or over tops with jeans as this garment can be dressed up or worn casually.

4) Flower Child Circle Tank

The Flower Child Circle Tank kit in 24/7 Cotton®

Keep cool and flirty this summer with the Flower Child Circle Tank. Drapey loose crochet mixes with a circular shape in this fun and easy top that will have you spinning with joy.

5) The Seashell Cardigan

The Seashell Cardigan Kit in 24/7 Cotton®

The Seashell Cardigan is crocheted in one piece. The collar & sleeves are added on after. This cardigan uses lacy shell stitches to create a beautiful lightweight design. With no sewing and a simple construction, it’s a great pattern for all levels.
