5 perfect knitting kits for warmer weather!

As we have just returned from the Spring Knitting and Stitching Show we have come to think of knitwear for warmer weather. Although it still feels rather chilly out there most days it is never too early to cast on a new project! Did you know alpaca yarn is brilliant for warmer weather as well as the cold? Because the fibres are hollow it regulates temperature much better than wool and won’t feel as heavy as a wool jumper might. Many of Kari-Helene’s designs are intentionally knitted on larger needles than you might expect for the thickness of yarn and this also contributes to a light feel to the finished garments.

1. Esme Sleeveless Top

Esme Sleeveless jumper

You could make many fun variations of this design as the pattern comes with the option of long sleeves and a princess collar. The pattern is graded for 5 sizes from X-Small to X- Large. You can buy the knitting kit from £69 and the knitting pattern for £4 (pattern is for both jumper and top).

2. Bjelle Top

A vintage inspired design with striking sleeve details and a close fitting bodice. This design is perfect for spring weather and we can’t wait to wear it with a printed skirt and flat shoes! The pattern is graded for 5 sizes from X-Small to X- Large. You can buy the knitting kit from £50.50 and the knitting pattern for £4.

3. Lady Cardigan

Lady Cardigan Purl Alpaca Designs

A cardigan is always useful regardless of season. Wear it as a layer in winter and as a light jacket once the weather gets warmer. The pattern is very simple and can easily be adapted for a novice knitter by eliminating the colour work. The pattern is graded for 5 sizes from X-Small to X- Large. You can buy the knitting kit from £87.50 and the knitting pattern for £4.

4. Masika Skirt

Masika Skirt - Purl Alpaca Designs

A knitted skirt is a different idea for spring weather. Easy to style with short sleeved tops and light weigh shirts. Wear it with thick tights and chunky boots on the colder days or barely there nude ones and plimsolls on warmer days. The pattern is graded for 5 sizes from X-Small to X- Large. You can buy the knitting kit from £41.25 and the knitting pattern for £5.5.

 

5. Breeze Top

Breeze beautiful knitted garment purl alpaca

This stunning design includes a fitted, ribbed waistband in contrast to the oversized and draped body. The cable running up the sleeve openings add interest and breaks up the bulk of the stocking stitch knitting. The pattern is graded for 5 sizes from X-Small to X- Large. You can buy the knitting kit from £59.75 and the knitting pattern for £3.

We hope that gives you some inspiration for lovely warmer weather knits and look forward to seeing your photos of how you were your Purl Alpaca Designs’ in the spring! Check out the photos other people have sent us on the customer gallery over on Pinterest!
