32 warm-weather knitting projects to make for kids

As a knitter and teacher in Southern California, author Kristi Porter knows well what warm-weather knitters want. Based on the success of her previous book, Knitting in the Sun: 32 Projects for Warm Weather, it's evident that patterns for warmer weather and warmer climate knitting are in demand.

This time Kristi focuses her knitting needles on warm weather patterns for children, bringing you a stunningly designed collection of projects and the same beautiful photography you enjoyed in Knitting in the Sun.

  • 32 warm weather patterns for children sized 2-12
  • Garments are designed to be comfortable to both knit and wear during warm weather
  • Other title by Porter: Knitting in the Sun: 32 Projects for Warm Weather

If you enjoy knitting in the summer or live in a climate that is warm year-round, More Knitting in the Sun will keep your needles clicking until the wee hours of morning.
