Some time back, we promised you a look at some adult patterns from Sublime. (It was when we were oohing and aahing over the dotey baby patterns here.) Since it now looks as if summer's properly started, here's a couple of useful summer garments. First, we have a really fun garment - it's got stripes and flounces. It's called The Big Frill, and it's knit in Sublime DK. You'll find the pattern along with 16 others for adults and children in The Sublime Merino Knit Book #602. You could leave out the stripes, of course, and knit the entire garment in a single colour, but it would be a pity to lose all those colours, don't you think? Another lovely summer knit is Spinnaker, from The Second Sublime Merino DK Book, where you'll also find eight other patterns for all ages. Sun, sea, sand and stripes: what more could you want?
