The good folks at Craft Foxes have done some digging so the rest of us don’t have to and have collected a great group of summer knitting patterns for your enjoyment.
All of the patterns are for home decor — since most people don’t want to knit a sweater this time of year anyway — and include cuties like a Leg0-style brick cozy (to use as a door stop) and a giant knit yarn basket.
But my favorite is probably the big, graphic pouf, which is just a gathered rectangle of Garter Stitch worked holding three strands of yarn together. The pattern comes from Flax & Twine and is a quick and easy way to bring a lot of color and handmade flair to a room.
Have you ever knit any home decor items? Spill it!
