Pattern Inspiration: Beach Days


There's no denying it, summer is here and I can't stop thinking about holidays at the seaside. While I won't get away until later summer or early autumn, there's no reason I can't enjoy looking at all things that remind me of the beach. So this week's pattern inspiration post comes as no surprise, inspired by a longing for sea, sun and lazy days. Enjoy!

1. I absolutely love Life's a Beach! The fossil pattern looks amazing in the blue yarn and this cowl is just what you need on a windy beach walk. The pattern is available in English and German, and if you have two balls of 4-play, you're good to go!

2. If you've got your hands on issue 89 of Knit Now, you will have seen these fun little Beach Bears. I love those little life preservers and the seashell necklace one of them is wearing. While toys are always fiddly to knit, these would be a fun distraction from your usual projects. 

3. Amanda Berry's Beach Hut pattern is absolutely free. Yay! In my eyes, nothing is more British than the sight of colourful beach huts, so this knitting pattern is perfect for lovers of the British seaside. Why not knit two or three in different colours for the full effect?

4. This light jumper is a-ma-zing. Jellyfish is only available in Russian, sadly, but I had to show it to you because I am intrigued by its ethereal quality. It looks like some rows are knitted with a transparent yarn or thread so the sleeves and neck appear disconnected from the rest of the garment. I can imagine that if you are an experienced knitter and don't read Russian, you can probably wing it without the pattern. I just love the whole look of it.
