  • Color and texture is the focus of the Summer 2008 issue of Interweave Knits with a wonderful collection of items to knit for women. There are patterns for sleeveless and short sleeved tops, a vest, cardigan, dress, skirt, wrap, and socks. For men, there is a classic textured pullover. For those who are particularly interested in lace knitting, you will find patterns for a scarf, a tunic, a short sleeved summer top, and a light and lacy hoodie. Each pattern includes full instructions as well as graphs and charts where necessary. There is an interesting article on regenerated yarns based on soy, corn, and bamboo fibers. There is also an informative article on Schoolhouse Press which has been responsible for so many publications for knitters. A pattern for a Maltese Fisherman Hat by Elizabeth Zimmerman is an extra bonus and the theory behind color mixing is well covered.
