A prime example of how fabric structure and color can interact, the Roped Shell’s slip-stitch boxes force narrow horizontal color stripes to curve slightly and create rolling, rippling lines. Designer Angela Hahn finds the perfect echo with rich cable trims at the hem and neck. Narrow slip-stitch columns hide the end-of-round jog.

My list of requirements for summer knitting projects is not long, but it is non-negotiable. I'm not a knitter who puts the needles away for the summer (after all, I don't have to actually wear what I'm knitting until things cool off), but I do get a lot more selective. The Buena Vista Stole, published in Interweave Knits Summer 2018 and available as an Interweave kit for a limited time, squarely checks every box, and I haven't put it down since I started knitting last week. Here are my…

On Our Radar: 10 Best Knitted Tank Top Patterns for Summer

The topic of tank top patterns is a divisive one for knitters. On the one hand they provide an opportunity to knit something a little different, quicker (no sleeves!), and with totally different yarn than cold-weather projects. On the other hand—well, I’m not even sure what’s on that other hand. I’ve just heard knitters complain about knitted tank tops, but I’m not sure what the problem was. Sometimes they can be a little bulky, but that problem can be solved with yarn selection and gauge…

The cables are perfect on Norah Gaughan's Sloan Dress: they don’t overwhelm the dress but rather add a bit of knitterly intrigue and delicate sophistication. The turtleneck adds great balance to the cables, while the short sleeves keep this piece effortlessly wearable. And if a knitted dress is just outside of your comfort zone, you can shorten it to a tunic.
