Light & Layered Knits

One of the unfortunate things about living in the midwest is that the weather is always changing.  It can be 60 degrees in the morning, 80 in the afternoon, and then 50 again at night.  August can be like July or October, and it may not even get cold enough to snow here until January.  Therefore, I'm always on the lookout for clothing that is easy to layer.  A shirt or sweater than can be layered with another top can easily last me all year long, no matter what the weather. 

If you love the look of layers and are looking for knitting patterns that are lightweight and easy to wear, you're going to love the patterns in Light & Layered: 19 Sophisticated Designs for Every Season.  Filled with various tops, sweaters, cardigans, tank tops and more, this book can instantly transform your wardrobe into one that's fuctional and long-lasting.

I love the Pier 39 top, which is a solid-colored shell that makes for an indispensible wardrobe basic.  With it's unique design and artistic pattern, this knit top can be worn with a pair of shorts or would make a lovely top to wear with a light jacket for a casual holiday party.  Created in 4 parts, this knit top is artistic and versitle, and can really flatter almost any body size.

Several of the patterns in Light & Layered Knits are made with solid colors, so they're easy to mix and match and wear almost any time.  If you're feeling creative and want to try some different color combinations, you can easily adapt these tutorials to suit your needs.  There are also projects for all levels of knitters, so there's no reason why you can't jump in and get to creating your own clothes right now.

I also love that there are knits for all types of wardrobes.  There are simple sweaters that you can wear any time, and there are also more professional tops, tunics, and cardigans that would be more appropriate for an office setting. 

With just a couple of these tops from Light & Layered Knits, you can create a whole new collection of wardrobe staples that you'll be able to wear throughout the seasons.
