Floral knits to upgrade your spring/summer wardrobe

Published on 1 March 2022 By Sarah Jones 2 min read

While florals for spring, in the words of Miranda Priestly, aren’t exactly “groundbreaking”, we can’t get enough of beautiful blooms all over our knitwear. Get ready for our favourite floral knit and crochet garment patterns with jumpers, cardis, accessories and more! 

Embroider flowers on your knitwear

Add texture and colour to your garments with embroidered floral designs - think statement motifs around the yoke or embroidered small roses all over your garment. Warunee from Plystre Knitwear shows you how to embroider flowers onto your sweater - a technique you can use time and time again! 

MillaMia’s Midsummer Collection celebrates the beauty of the Swedish midsummer eve traditions. This wildly whimsical collection is bursting with folksy floral embroidery and summer solstice inspiration.
