Katia is bringing the party to you this summer! In this post, you’ll find no fewer than 7 free patterns to knit or crochet summer scarves and shawls. A multifunctional accessory that no wardrobe should be without.
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.
