Sleeveless into summer - Cool tops for spring and summer

Posted on

The beauty of a sleeveless top is that it is light and summery. It is also quick to make and could be the perfect Christmas present!

Thin straps and a light body complement each other perfectly - just look at this light camisole top with its unusual hemline! Made with ggh Manila, a linen, cotton and viscose blend. The zig-zag pattern emerges naturally from working the pattern. Viscose is the name for natural man-made yarns from woody fibres and usually uses fast growing plants such as birch or bamboo. Very soft with a beautiful silky sheen.

And when it gets so hot that you really don't want to wear much at all, choose a net pattern such as this airy and light summer top in super-cool ggh Linova cotton-linen yarn. 

ggh Linova is a cotton-linen blend that is available in a range of colours. If your favourite colour is not included in the knit kit options, let us know - we can put together a knit kit in any of the ggh Linova colours we stock (ggh Linova only and subject to availability).

One particular favourite is ggh Reva, a cotton yarn made from recycled jeans. Why not combine this very soft and environmentally friendly yarn with some playful ruffles to achieve a look that works with shorts and skirts alike. And as with all our knit kits - if you want to make this in a different colour, get in touch and we will do our best to get this organised for you!

Show your soft side when out jogging with a beautiful yarn and a delightful pattern for a hooded top (below). The yarn is ggh Bellina - a fluffy cotton yarn that is guaranteed soft and not scratchy, no matter how warm it gets!
