Welcome the warm weather with open arms with the brand new Simply Summer collection from the one and only Debbie Bliss. This collection of five knitting and crochet patterns is made up of light and breezy tops that are guaranteed to become your summer wardrobe staples!
The Simply Summer collection is all about the detail – a contrast colour in a raglan sleeve, a diagonal eyelet in a rib and st.st top and cabled sleeves contrasting against a plain body. These gorgeous touches give these super wearable pieces a cool but casual finish.
As well as three stylish knitting patterns, Simply Summer also features two crochet tops – a long line tunic with a simple neckline and a cropped top with puffed sleeves.
All of the new patterns are created using versatile, lightweight summery yarns – Debbie Bliss Piper, Debbie Bliss Cotton DK and Debbie Bliss Eco Baby. While Debbie has opted for a selection of neutral tones and muted pastels, the yarns are available in a huge range of colours – from brights to darker hues – making this collection completely adaptable for any wardrobe.
