How to make your own summer knits

Summer is here, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to dive into some light, breezy knitting projects 🌼 Knitting can be a wonderful way to relax and create something unique. In this post, we'll guide you through designing your own personalized summer knitwear using our user-friendly design tool. Let's get started!

 

🔮 STEP 1 - FIND SOME INSPIRATION

If you don't already have a vision in mind, you can look for inspiration. Great sources for inspiration are other garments, colors, materials and such. We like to take a look on Pinterest before making our designs. There's also lots of inspiration to find on the street or on other social media platforms. Maybe you even have some yarn in your stash that can inspire you?

When you've got a picture of what you'd like, it's time to go to the next step.

 

🧑‍🎨 STEP 2 - ENTER THE DESIGN TOOL

Go to our design tool and pick the design attributes of your liking. For now, you can make a sweater, slipover or t-shirt. More options are coming in the future 👀

 

🧶 STEP 3 - SELECT YOUR YARN

Choose yarn from our extensive yarn database or input the details of any other yarn you want to use. We recommend light, breathable materials like cotton and linen for summer knits. You can use the filter function in the yarn database to see these types of yarns. 

 

💌 STEP 4 - RECEIVE THE PATTERN 

Once you're happy with your design and complete the order, we'll generate the knitting pattern tailored to your specifications. Within seconds, you'll receive the pattern in your email inbox with step-by-step instructions in text and video format.

 

🪄 STEP 5 - START KNITTING

Now it's time to knit your own design. All our patterns are knitted from the top down. This allows you to easily adjust the length of the body and sleeves as you go and ensures a great fit. 

 

✅ STEP 6 - FINISHING THE PROJECT

After knitting you'll have a unique, custom-designed piece ready to wear or gift. Enjoy the satisfaction of having created something uniquely yours 🫶
