When it comes to knitting. most people probably think of heavy winter sweaters, but knitting lends itself just as well to summer garments. Not only can you knit AT the beach (what could be more relaxing than that?), but you can knit projects FOR the beach. Cover-ups and hats pull double duty during the summer, both on the beach and off. Sarongs can double as shawls when the weather turns cool. Here are 8 knitted beach projects to get you started. Memorial Day is weeks away, so start now to have your bikini ready in time for the start of the summer season.
