After assembling this month’s Things to Knit, it’s very clear that shawls were big among indie designers in June. Shawls, shawl-shaped sweaters, and wraps were published in full force. It’s no surprise – with their adaptability to different kinds of weather and suitability to lightweight yarns, shawls and wraps are kind of the perfect summer knit.

I love to browse Ravelry, blogs, magazines and Pinterest to round up the 10 patterns I’m most excited about that were released each month. May is a fantastic month to find inspiration because the spring and summer issues of magazines feature lots of interesting lightweight shawls and sweaters, plus fun toys and accessories.
