Sari Nordlund is a Finnish professional knitwear designer. She is well-known for her work with her cables which gives her a great personal style. She seeks to update the classic handmade cabled and lace sweaters in her patterns for a more modern look. Her summer patterns collection follows that philosophy, so you can find this type of motif in her tank tops.

My favorite is the back of the Sunkissed Top. It’s a top with straps to show off your shoulders. It has a delicate stitch pattern along the center of the back. The sample piece was knit in cotton, but any summer fiber would be perfect. It’s an ideal top to wear over a bikini when going to the beach or the pool for a great summer look.

Other of my favorite summer patterns are the Kuutar Top and Kuutar Tee. Kuutar means “the lady of the moon,” and Sari has made a collection of designs inspired by that. For the summer, you can choose between straps or short sleeves. The lace pattern will shine in all its splendor if knitted in a solid color.

And finally, a top with an all-over lace texture that won't make you bored while knitting it. The Ogge was published in Pompom Magazine a few years ago. It’s a reversible top; one side has a scoop neck and the other a V-neck. You can choose how to wear it according to your preferences.
