Best spring/summer tees of 2014

Best summer tee knitting patterns

As soon as I say that, some brilliant new tees will come along. But there has been a flood of little sweater tee patterns so far this year, and these are my personal favorites:

TOP LEFT: Driftwood Tee by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark — with just a little triangle patch of mesh

TOP RIGHT: Front Pleat Dolman by Jane Howorth — love the sleeves, the pleat, the texture blocking, but I’d likely skip the picot edge on the hem

MIDDLE LEFT: Shady Grove by Cedar Box Knits — again with the little zigzag of lace

MIDDLE RIGHT: Linum Tee by Bristol Ivy — nice and simple

BOTTOM LEFT: Sonora by Courtney Kelley — LOVE the stitch pattern

BOTTOM RIGHT: Bohemian Tee by Erica Schleuter — and I’m into the granny-chic-ness of this, want to knit it in natural linen and wear it with holey jeans and a killer pair of sandals (still also want to crochet this in monochrome)

I also love Grace Ahkrem’s Petaluma Tee — it might be my favorite — but I can’t bear the styling in that photo. And we’ve talked about Pam Allen’s Perkins Cove Pullover already, but have you seen Fancy Amber’s short-sleeved version? So cute.
