Katia is bringing the party to you this summer! Color, texture, style and more than a hint of glam, all wrapped up in a multi-functional accessory that no wardrobe should be without. Read on as we present no fewer than 5 new FREE patterns for knitting and crocheting gorgeous summer scarves from Katia.
If you thought that scarves were just for winter, then think again! Maybe you’re the kind of person who heads out in a sleeveless dress at the first hint of summer sun. Only to realize after a few hours of catching up with friends over a nice cold drink outdoors that you really should have brought a cardigan or wrap after all. Sound familiar? Well, no more! A handmade summer shawl or scarf is a fabulous solution. Not too warm, but just warm enough to keep the chill at bay.
And by the way, summer scarves don’t just come in handy on cool summer evenings. During the day, they provide essential protection from the sun. And we don’t need to tell you that they complete a summer outfit to stylish perfection.
Summer scarves from Katia
The Spanish brand, Katia, sure knows how to design summer scarves. That’s perhaps not surprising given the sun-drenched Costas and the culture of dining well after sunset. Below are 5 free patterns for a range of summer scarves designed by Katia, each using their wonderful summery yarn. The varied colorways of the yarn ensure that you’re able to match the scarves and shawls seamlessly to the rest of your summer wardrobe.
Summer Scarf Fair Cotton Craft
All you need is a single ball of Katia Fair Cotton Craft and a size 4.5 mm crochet hook to crochet this fashionable summer stole. Just one ball! That also means it’s a handy little project to pack in your bag or suitcase to keep your hands busy while chilling in the sun on holiday. The pattern uses color 601 (Grey/Coral/Ocher), but you can of course choose any of the other 7 colorways you like best. Each option of this gradient yarn uses soft pastels that come together to create a beautiful whole. Bonus: the pattern is also suitable for beginner crocheters!
