Knit Shrugs Shrug Patterns for Warm Weather

When you’re looking for a great knitting pattern, shrug patterns don’t often come to mind. You always think of hats and scarves and sweaters and blankets, but never shrugs. Knit Shrugs: 19 Shrug Patterns for Warm Weather will change that quickly. This collection of warm weather shrugs will convince you that a shrug has to be the next pattern on your list.

Knit shrug patterns are the perfect summer knits because shrugs are the perfect shape and weight to be useful during the summer. Unlike a knit sweater pattern that often has long sleeves and dense, warm fabric, a knit shrug pattern gives the perfect amount of warmth to fend off a summer breeze or the chill after dark.

From lace to cables to ribbed knit, this collection has it all. You will be able to find something that will inspire you to grab your needles. Make a few of these shrugs to take with you on your summer adventures, both near and far. There are also patterns for little girls, so knit some up for your daughter or a friend!

Lace Knitting Patterns for Knit Shrugs

Ribbed Lace Bolero

Lacy patterns are perfect for summer knitting, since the open designs allowing some airflow while also keeping out the early morning or late night chills. Lace also speaks of elegance, so these patterns can be dressed up to fit any fancy occasion.  They are also just plain beautiful. Who doesn’t love the feel and look of lace in a piece of clothing?

Lace knitting patterns can work up faster than other patterns, too, since the open pattern means less stitches knit for the same size garment. It can be fun to use yarn overs and slip stitches to see the beautiful designs unfold!

Other Fun Shrug Patterns

Prim and Proper Shrug

If you’re looking for something a bit warmer than an open lace shrug, these knit shrug patterns will be perfect for you. These knitting patterns create a dense fabric, which means there is more coverage for your shoulders and arms. Some use simple stitches, others use cable knit. Some have long sleeves, and others, none. Any of these patterns are perfect for a summer beach outing, the waves rippling with a summer breeze. It will also be a great chance to show off your awesome knitting skills!

Whatever your shrug needs, you will find it in this list. And you will love making it!

Little Girl Shrug Patterns

Girl's Turquoise Sparkle Cardi

Nothing is cuter than a little girl in a fun summer dress. But often, those summer dresses have short sleeves or no sleeves. What do you do if they get a little chilly? Throw one of these great little girl shrugs in your bag, and you will be set. Make it in a neutral color like white to match any of her adorable outfits, or make one with a bright pop to go with a flowery dress. No matter what the color, your little girl will be glad for its warmth once the sun goes down.

How are you having fun in the sun this summer?
