I love knit and crochet items and, in the summer, there's really not all that many opportunities to wear them. At least not the conventional styles. Like a good portion of the country, we're in a bit of a heat wave at the moment, after all, and sweaters and scarves really don't help in staying cool.
I'd like to introduce you to another style today that I discovered in Carmen Bee's shop on Etsy.
The summer scarf.
Loosely knit for breathe-ability. Light weight. Colorful. It's perfect!
Scarves like this are fun and flirty and make a great accent for your summer outfits without making you roast beneath the heat of a more densely crocheted design.
This isn't all that CarmenBee offers either. There's knit hats and scarflettes for those below the equator that are getting ready for winter as well as a few crochet baby accessories and even a smattering of jewelry!
