10 Women’s Spring/Summer Dresses – Free Knit Patterns

It’s a new week, and we’re back again with a new post full of lovely patterns you can knit up, and which you can download entirely for free! As usual, we love scouting around and searching for the best knitting patterns available, and presenting them to you here in our weekly posts, to help inspire you next knitting projects, and to make it easier for you to find patterns.

We’ve focused quite a bit on baby items in our most recent batch of knit patterns posts, in fact last week we featured 13 items ideal for baby girls, which was a hit with you readers! So today we’re turning our focus away from baby items and instead concentrating on creating items which we can enjoy ourselves! And since the weather is warming up and Summer is pretty much with us, today we’ve decided to present you with 10 lovely patterns for Spring/Summer women’s dresses.

As usual, the patterns we present below include a mix of skill level required for you to create them. So whether you’re looking for something easy, or something which requires Intermediate to Experienced skill, you’ll find something for you below.

So go on, check out the gorgeous dresses we have picked for you today… which one is your favourite? Pick one and knit it up for yourself to enjoy in the coming months!
