    It’s time for Laine's stunning summer issue! Laine 21, Harvest Sun, is filled with beautiful and practical summer knits featuring interesting stitch patterns, engaging techniques and lovely details. The serene photos depict a balmy summer day in the countryside, amidst blooming gardens and golden, sun-drenched fields.
