Knitting in the Sun: For Kids

32 warm-weather knitting projects to make for kids

As a knitter and teacher in Southern California, author Kristi Porter knows well what warm-weather knitters want. Based on the success of her previous book, Knitting in the Sun: 32 Projects for Warm Weather, it's evident that patterns for warmer weather and warmer climate knitting are in demand.
This time Kristi focuses her knitting needles on warm weather patterns for children, bringing you a stunningly designed collection of projects and the same beautiful photography you enjoyed in Knitting in the Sun.

32 warm weather patterns for children sized 2-12

Garments are designed to be comfortable to both knit and wear during warm weather

Other title by Porter: Knitting in the Sun: 32 Projects for Warm Weather

If you enjoy knitting in the summer or live in a climate that is warm year-round, More Knitting in the Sun will keep your needles clicking until the wee hours of morning.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

Reviewing this book was not hard. All you have to do is look at one photograph and you are pulled in. I loved the previous book, Knitting in the Sun and knew I had to check out this book. While I don't have kids, it gives me great ideas for gifts for my niece. The clever designs and adorable outfits make me want to go and hide in the corner with my knitting needles and not come up for air.

Excellent book. The patterns are primarily written, but there are some that are charted.

Bulky sweaters be gone!

Knitting in the Sun gives you more than 30 projects designed exclusively to knit and wear in warm weather. You'll find patterns to keep your needles clicking whether you're lounging by the pool or taking a break at the beach:

5 sleeveless tops
4 short-sleeved tops
4 lightweight long-sleeved tops
6 summer-weight cardigans
2 skirts, a sleep set, and a wearable bathing suit
9 accessories ranging from a beach hat to a cotton wrap to a beach chair

Whether you're new to knitting or a seasoned stitcher, you'll find fresh patterns and compelling designs to create gorgeous lightweight pieces that will make a splash on sunny days. (Goodreads)

This book is one of my favorites. With the same style as the new More Knitting in the Sun,  the original is wonderful for those warm spring and summer days that are just up ahead.
